A group of dolphins have made their way up the Hackensack River near Teaneck, Bogota and Hackensack, prompting concerns that they may not survive being so far from the sea. Eight to 15 dolphins were first spotted near the Midtown Bridge Wednesday morning. They have stayed around the Hackensack area most of the day with several sightings near the Bergen County Jail. There is not enough food in the river this time of year to sustain a dolphin, said Bill Sheehan, head of the Hackensack Riverkeeper group.
