Atlantic Silversides

Images and video from the Providence River, which had a bloom of
Atlantic silversides. Years ago we'd see Atlantic menhaden, but
these seem to have disappeared; they filled the river. The
silversides are smaller, but beautiful; the light reflecting
from their scales makes the river flash and glisten. (The videos
are slight, fish almost invisible, something of Sung aesthetics,
uncanny, empty.)
