October 24, 2020 is World Fish Migration Day, the annual global celebration of migratory fish and the rivers & streams that sustain them. On Long Island, migratory fish such as Alewives and American Eel – species that rely on our many small streams – are a vital part of sustaining the health of our coastal ecosystem. They deliver ocean-derived energy to our bays and uplands and provide forage for countless species of fish, birds and invertebrates. Join Seatuck as we mark this event by participating in online celebrations and recommitting to the restoration of Long Island’s rivers and streams!

In honor of World Fish Migration Day, here’s a glimpse of an American Eel (yellow eel phase) filmed recently in a Nassau County stream. Join us in helping more juvenile American Eels get upstream to grow to this size!
