What is a Shad?

Shad, also known as river herring, is a type of fish in the genus Alosa. They are native to North America and can live in saltwater or freshwater. They swim up the rivers to spawn.

The many varieties of this fish include the American, gizzard, threadfin and hickory shad. Some of these fish live in the ocean, while others live in fresh or brackish waters. Different varieties can be found in the ocean as well as in many North American rivers.

 Shad cannot be kept in Maryland and are caught for sport fishing and then released.
