World Fish Migration Day will be held on May 16th, 2020. Over a hundred events have already been posted on our website by those who care about rivers, fish and the communities that appreciate and depend on them. Please join us for this free webinar and learn how you be a part of this celebration.

In this webinar you’ll hear examples of some of the previous celebrations that have been held around the world by individuals, groups, business, government agencies and non- profit organizations, you’ll hear about ideas and concepts that would allow you to easily join and participate and hear how this got started. You might be surprised how easy it is to make a difference.

In this webinar you will also hear about how you can work as an individual or in partnership with others to develop an event or an activity that brings attention, understanding, support or education to the citizens around the globe, decision makers, and inspires all to make our rivers great again.

The Joint Committee on Fisheries Engineering and Science is hosting a free webinar series as part of its mission to engage scientists and engineers on topics related to fish passage. The Committee consists of members of the American Fisheries Society Bioengineering Section (AFS-BES) and the American Society of Civil Engineers Environmental and Water Resources Institute (ASCE-EWRI). It was established in January 2011 to foster communication between the two groups, provide opportunities for engineers and biologists to share relevant knowledge and learn from one another, and to collaborate on projects related to fish passage.
