Together for Happy Fish!

Many species of salmon, shad, giant catfishes, dourado, sturgeons and eel migrate between the sea and the rivers to complete their life cycle. If they cannot reach their breeding ground, the species will decline and eventually become extinct. With World Fish Migration Day we aim to recover healthy rivers and prevent future degradation and species extinction. We do this to improve environmental conditions, which we owe to future generations, and to ensure the sustenance of the millions of human lives that depend on rivers. In order to accomplish this brighter future, we need to start by educating people and raising awareness of the current situation as well as solutions to the problems.
