  • Great Fish Count:1 Fish, 2 Fish, I Fish, You Fish

    Jun 2 2018 -
    9:00am to 6:30pm
    Striped bass and bluefish and fluke, oh my! Now in its third year, this hugely popular, all-age, hands-on event is a celebration of the marine life in the waters surrounding our five boroughs. Top marine biologists and scientists will work with you and your kids to discover–and count–the many species of fish and marine creatures (even seahorses) right here in our own city waterways. No net needed. We’ll provide everything, including waders. Just head on down and help us count.

    The Great Fish Count is FREE and open to the public. RSVP not required, but encouraged. RSVP HERE!

    Produced in partnership with the Lamont–Doherty Earth Observatory and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

    Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
