Connecting Fish, Rivers and People: The issue of plastics in fresh water ecosystems
World Fish Migration Day is a global event held every two years, and its main objective is to raise awareness of the importance of free rivers and migratory fish. This commemorative date was instituted and is coordinated by the World Fish Migration Foundation, an organization located in Netherlands.
In celebration of this date, since 2014, the Seminar Connecting Fish, Rivers and People has been held in the city of Sorocaba, with the 2018 and 2020 editions taking place with the full support of Universidade Paulista UNIP, through the sector of events and the Vice-Rectory of Graduate Studies and Research.
In the year 2022, in addition to dealing with migratory fish and the importance of rivers free of dams, we will address several topics related to the conservation of aquatic ecosystems. This event will also address the issue of plastics in freshwater ecosystems, an extremely current topic that is being widely addressed in research, due to its importance for the environment and human health.
