a dozen river herring photographed underwater along their spring migration route in Maine

Saturday, May 25, 2024 is World Fish Migration Day!

The Gulf of Maine is home to several species of "sea run fish" that spend a portion of their lives in freshwater and a portion of their lives in the ocean. In our StoryMap collection, you can read more about their migrations and how Sea Grant is contributing to studies and collaborating with communities along the migration routes.
