World Fish Migration Lower Hudson & Harbor Fish Count

Join us at the Hudson River Field Station ( 200 Ferry Road Piermont, NY 10968) from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for the annual World Fish Migration Day Fish Count. This free, family-friendly event offers participants a chance to jump into waders (provided) and enter into a wadable section of the Hudson off the Piermont pier to go seining (an indigenous fishing method that involves walking a large net through the water) with the Field Station Staff. Participants will help us to count and identify the different species of fish and crabs we catch! This event also offers other educational activities and resources focused on the Hudson River Estuary and climate change. Our site is part of a larger event in the Lower Hudson and Habor. World Fish Migration Day is an event celebrated worldwide to recognize the importance of migratory species as they enter into rivers and tributaries in late spring and early summer.
