What we do on World Fish Migration Day...

Migratory fish are extraordinary!

World Fish Migration Day is a global awareness campaign celebrated every two years to highlight the connections that migratory fishes have with human and non-human species, lands, and waters. This day is marked by celebrations, events, and action campaigns organized by people around the world to connect fish, rivers, and people. World Fish Migration Foundation is the main organizer of World Fish Migration Day, and the theme for 2024 is Free Flow.

This World Fish Migration Day, know, imagine, and act for migratory fishes and free flowing rivers. Know fish connections with lands and waters and how they flourish when rivers flow more freely. Imagine and explore life underwater and act as stewards for migratory fishes.
