1st World Fish Migration Day

Saturday 24th May is the first World Fish Migration Day 2014(WFMD), a global initiative to promote awareness of the importance of migratory fish and healthy, free-flowing rivers. A total of 250 events are taking place worldwide based on the theme ‘connecting rivers, fish and people’, and we are delighted to be taking part with an event of our own on the banks of the River Clyde. Join us to celebrate the day with ‘Salmon Homecoming’ at the David Livingstone Centre in Blantyre. This family-friendly day will celebrate the return of salmon to the Clyde. Come along to find out about their history and the story of their migratory journey. Meet different species of migratory fish found in the Clyde, the beasties that they feed on and chat to scientists who work on the river. Salmon Homecoming is being held at the David Livingstone Centre in Blantyre from 11am-3pm on Saturday 24th May (see flyer). The event is free to attend following registration. To register contact Dr Gemma Jennings at the Clyde River Foundation on gemma@clyderiverfoundation.org or 0141 330 5080.                                              banner
