Go Fish “Catch and Release”. Join Master Anglers from Battery Park City Conservancy, plus kids and adults alike as they experience “catch and release” fishing in Battery Park. An added bonus…rods and bait are provided to all participants. Everyone will have a chance to drop a line for some of the 30-plus species of fish that live in New York Bay (the Hudson River’s estuary). During GO FISH, barbless hooks minimize injuries to both fish and participants. Fish are placed in saltwater tanks for observation and identification before being released back into the Hudson. Live demonstrations and displays teach fish anatomy and heighten awareness of the ecology, flourishing marine life and current state of good health of the Hudson River and its estuary. Art projects and other activities will be available.
The afternoon will also include live music with Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke at 12:30p.
