On Friday 20 May, during the WFMD2016 Kick-off a new symbol for fish migration was proudly unveiled by Hannibal Bolton from US Fish and Wildlife and Deputy Johannes Kramer from the Netherlands (Provincial Executive of Friesland). This symbol is called the Happy Fish!
The Happy Fish © is the ultimate icon for people, organizations and projects that aim to recreate free migration for fish populations. This symbol unites initiatives by nature organizations and local government bodies from all over the globe that wish to enable free passage for migratory fish. Through publicity- and fundraising initiatives, the Happy Fish © logo is a symbol signifying that migratory fish must move freely between their natural spawning-, growth- and habitat areas. The ‘big smile’ means that if successful, fish populations can thrive and increase.
