World Fish Migration Day is a one day global celebration to create worldwide awareness of the importance of freshwater migratory fish and free-flowing rivers.
On World Fish Migration Day, thousands of organizations, schools, and communities organize their local events to educate and excite people about migratory fish species and our collective reliance on healthy free flowing rivers. These events help reach students, teachers, resource managers, commercial and recreational anglers, as well as those who influence public policy that affect rivers. It is the goal of the World Fish Migration Foundation, its partners and supporters that this day reconnects people back to their rivers and the fish that inhabit them. Individual event organization and promotion is done through local initiative inspired and supported by the World Fish Migration Foundation. At the local level, the logo and central message of World Fish Migration Day, “Connecting fish, rivers and people” will be used to connect sites around the world. The day will start in New Zealand and follow the sun around the world, ending in Hawaii.
