Introduction to Fish Migration
Fish need to move! They need to find food, find places to spawn, to hide or rest - and they need aquatic connections between all of these places. Were you aware that over 6-million man-made barriers, in the U.S. alone, keep fish from getting to where they need to go to grow and survive?
Discover why fish migrate, learn about barriers to their migration, and how to make a barrier more fish-friendly.
As you review the materials, consider adapting the lesson using migratory fish found in the waterways near you.
Learn more about the fish where you live by visiting your state's fish and game website.
