Allis shad, Alosa alosa (Linnaeus, 1758) belong to the herring family living most of their life in seawater but migrating to freshwater to spawn. They mature at 3-6 years of age and migrate many hundreds of kilometres upstream into their natal river to spawn. Spawning occurs during spring months in the main River and major tributaries, in shallow waters over gravel substrate. The adults usually die after spawning. Allis shad larvae hatch within 4-5 days after spawning, spend the summer in freshwater, and migrate into the river estuaries during autumn. Before they complete their first year of life they migrate back into the ocean.
