World Fish Migration Day: Lower Hudson and Harbor Fish Count

June 11, 2022
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, 61 Route 9W, Palisades, NY 10964

The World Fish Migration Day (WFMD) is a global celebration of our connection to our local waterways and recovering migratory fish populations. WFMD is an enormous movement, connecting hundreds of thousands of people around the world with the same interest: protecting rivers and fish. 

The lower Hudson and Harbor are celebrating WFMD through a family friendly Fish Count at various locations around New York. Each site is hosted by local environmental groups that will guide the public through fish collection via rod and reel, traps, or seine nets. Data will be collected and shared back!
