Our Fabulous Freshwater Fish – World Fish Migration Day

20/04/2018 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Looking for a school holiday activity to do with the kids? Come and meet our fabulous freshwater fish!

Join us to celebrate World Fish Migration Day, a global event to learn about the importance of open rivers and migratory fish. Lots of Freshwater fish experts will be on hand to show you some of our fabulous freshwater fish, what is special about them, and how they need to move within our rivers, and to and from the sea! There will be lots of games and activities for all – come on down to the playground and join in the fun.

Event organised by the Fish Passage Advisory Group, DOC, EOS Ecology, Environment Canterbury, Working Waters Trust, Kiwi Conservation Club, Marine Ecology Research Group at the University of Canterbury, and Fish & Game.
