Event Description

Celebrate the end of the Wetlab season from 3:00 to 6:00 PM and bid farewell to the wildlife that served as marine ambassadors this summer!

HRPK’s River Project team is excited to bring back the Release of the Fishes this season! Following a great summer in the Wetlab, it’s time to start returning all our fish and invertebrate friends back to the Hudson River, and you can help us.

Join our River Project during Release of the Fishes from 3:00 to 6:00 PM to learn more about local wildlife. You can help us return our fish residents to the Hudson River as we are getting ready to close the Wetlab for the season.

Our Wetlab is a flow-through aquarium that houses dozens of species of fish and invertebrates all caught within the Park as part of an ongoing ecological survey. The Wetlab is a rotating live exhibit as animals are released throughout the season to ensure that their behaviors are minimally impacted.

If you can’t make it to Pier 40 for the Release of the Fishes, keep an eye out on Instagram Live and Facebook Live @hudsonriverpark because we will be streaming special behind-the-scenes footage during the event.
