Herring Spawn Season

Just a heads up that herring spawn during Februay and March on seaweed. Their eggs are very tough and can be found on the actual shoreline attached to the seaweed. They look like small white dots attached to the seaweed leaves. The tide comes and goes, but the eggs survive! Thus if one harvests seaweed for the garden during this critical time, the eggs will die.
