Event helps educate public about Hudson River ecosystemPosted: Updated:
An annual event was held Saturday to help people learn about the health of the Hudson River's ecosystem.
The sixth annual Great Hudson Fish Count was held at the Piermont Pier.
The event was also held at banks and piers all across the Hudson River Saturday.
The Great Hudson Fish Count is organized by the Department of Environmental Conservation to get an understanding of the more than 200 species in the river that often migrate from the Atlantic Ocean.
"It's good because it's family time and it's always fun if you can actually catch some fish," says Robert Lim, of Queens. "I love being outdoors."
The event was free to participate in.
