Updated, eight:12 a.m.

Good morning on this iffy Tuesday.

Don&rsquot judge a river by its color.

It&rsquos a little some thing we discovered from the River Project, a group studying and restoring the Hudson River Estuary.

&ldquoA lot of people look at the river and speak about it hunting dirty, and naturally it&rsquos not like photos of the Caribbean,&rdquo mentioned Nina Hitchings, who oversees the project&rsquos wetlab on Pier 40.

But, she said, that murkiness is a good issue.

&ldquoThere is a lot of algae and phytoplankton and zooplankton in the water column, producing this a super productive ecosystem and generating this a nursery for fish,&rdquo Ms. Hitchings told us. &ldquoHundreds of years ago, prior to several people came, it would&rsquove been the identical color.&rdquo

(June, in specific, is prime time for spawning in our aquatic backyard: The water is hot and salty, so oceanic fish and marine species use our gentler, shallower estuary as a nursery until the young fish mature enough to head out to sea.)

The River Project has been running a fish ecology survey for 30 years to track trends in the decrease section of the Hudson River, and because 1988 it has discovered practically 60 species.

We recently stopped by the wetlab, the group&rsquos marine research field station, to meet some of the creatures living beneath our bridges and ferries.
