Join us Saturday June 1 from 11:00am to 1:00pm at Lemon Creek Park on Staten Island, NYC. We will se seining –using a long net—to catch fish and other aquatic life in both along the sandy beach and within the small tidal pond. We are hoping for some great biodiversity and fish stories! This event is family friendly, but does require a moderate walk on sandy ground.

 

We will collect data during the fish count to support better understanding of the migratory use of the estuary, along with the biodiversity of the lower Hudson. The full set of data allows to compare species richness and abundance to prior year spring fish counts and those that occur during other times of the year. The WFMD event builds on spring public fish count events that were organized from 2015 through 2019 as part of the World Science Festival, and we are thankful that there are so many wonderful partners that connect annually to make this annual event a success! The full set of data are shared here as part of our long term data history with this year’s data to be added after the event!

 

World Fish Migration Day is 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.
