The Great Fish Count

Saturday, May 30, 2015
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Across five boroughs and beyond, people of all ages pulled on a pair of waders, cast a net, and found marine life in New York’s waterways. Top ecologists and biologists helped catch, count, identify, and release the animals in NYC’s swarming waters.
