Get ready! This next May 21st 2022 we are globally celebrating opening up rivers and recovering migratory fish populations. Together we have created an enormous movement, connecting hundreds of thousands of people around the world with the same interest: protecting rivers and fish. Join us and take action locally!

The more people we can make aware of the huge challenges faced by fish, in order to survive in the modern world, the more opportunities we have to give them a helping hand

Past Events


Connecting fish, rivers and people.

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. On World Fish Migration Day, organizations from around the world coordinate their own event around the common theme of: CONNECTING FISH, RIVERS AND PEOPLE. 

Every year we are inspired by the involvement from passionate WFMD organizers and attendees. We can’t wait to celebrate with the world as we help rivers, fish, and people BREAK FREE!
