Migratory fish are critical to the long-term health of river and ocean ecosystems. They also provide us with food and support the livelihoods of people worldwide. Threats in rivers and at sea, however, have placed these fish under pressure and many species have seen population decline.

The Nature Conservancy proudly supports World Fish Migration Day (WFMD), a global initiative organized by the World Fish Migration Foundation aimed at raising awareness of the importance of migrating fish to our communities, our economies and to the conservation of nature. Visit the WFMD site to learn more.

May 21, 2016, marks the second celebration of WFMD, featuring local events worldwide. See where events are happening near you!
