The Hudson River Environmental Society & Hudson River Foundation have teamed up to present a series of presentations on Hudson River fish and the stressors affecting change. The Hudson River fish community has long been an important social, economic, and ecological sector of life in the Hudson Valley. Climate change, invasive species, off-shore commercial fishing, surge barriers, and dams present real challenges for the propagation and survival of Hudson River fish species today.
