World Fish Migration Day (WFMD) culminates every two years in a global celebration to create awareness about the importance of migratory fish and free-flowing rivers. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s spring event was rescheduled and then went mostly virtual with events leading up to the finale on October 24th. You can watch all the photos and videos of these amazing events on our feedback website.
Migratory fish all over the world depend on free flowing rivers. Today, river barriers like dams, sluices and many other obstacles threaten many fish species' survival.
Free flowing rivers, that allow fish to travel upriver, increase fish populations in the river and assure healthy river life.
