World Fish Migration Day Weekend

Updated: Jan 16, 2023

Join us for TWO events to honor fish migration and the fish that populate the special aquatic environment of Downeast Maine.

World Fish Migration Day, this Saturday May 21st, connects rivers, fish, and people in "a global celebration to create awareness about the importance of migratory fish and free-flowing rivers." This year, DSF is holding a paddle up the Narraguagus River to honor the native anadromous fish of Maine, that live in the Atlantic and migrate to Maine's rivers to lay their eggs and spawn the next generation of smelt, salmon, sea lampreys, shads, and alewives.

Speaking of alewives -- Alewife Days this weekend is being put on in partnership with The Greenhorns in Pembroke!
