Follow the Happy Fish

Many people and organizations work on restoring and recreating migration routes for fish. The international  Happy Fish symbol was unveiled on World Fish Migration Day 2016 at the Headquarters in Washington DC with the clear goal to connect these people and organizations all working on improving fish migration. The Happy Fish © is the ultimate symbol for people, organizations and projects that aim to recreate free migration for fish populations and it is our hope that it will be incorporated into many special events that educate the public about the importance of fish migration.

Therefor the Happy Fish symbol will travel to unique fish passage projects across the world. The Happy Fish symbol will start its travels in the United States of America. In the first year it will travel to four different locations and project sites in the USA. The following year, the Happy Fish symbol will travel to projects in other countries, educating citizens around the world about the importance of free fish migration.
