(Albany, NY) -- New York State is looking for volunteers to help count tiny glass eels in and along the Hudson River., including in Poughkeepsie.
The count of the clear slippery worm-like fish stretches from Albany to New York City and according to conservationists, it's an indicator of water quality. Officials say the higher number of glass eels means less local water pollution and currently, the tiny migratory eels are in decline.
To volunteer you can visit the New York Department of Environmental Conservation Website and search glass eels. https://www.dec.ny.gov/press/116579.html.
