Definition for Shad:
- Sing. and pl. a teleostean fish of the genus Alosa, family Clupeidae, which inhabits the sea near the mouths of large rivers, and in the spring ascends them to deposit its spawn. It attains a length of three feet, and is distinguished by the absence of sensible teeth, and by an irregular spot behind the gills. Two species of shad are found off the British coast, the Twaite ( A. vulgaris) and the Allice shad ( A. finta), but their flesh is dry and not much esteemed. In this country a species of shad, plentiful in the Hudson, Delaware, Chesapeake, and St. Lawrence is much esteemed, and is consumed in great quantities in the fresh state.
