Who we are

The World Fish Migration Foundation. 

Migratory fish need the complete/large section of a river system to fulfil their lifecycles and are a key link within the river ecosystems around the world. Increased impacts from instream barriers, dams, pollution and other habitat changes, have massive effects on the survival of these migratory fish, which result in impacts on the ecosystems and can have devastating effects on humans who are dependent on these fish as a food source.

The importance of these migratory fish, however, does not recieve the attention that it requires. As such World Fish Migration Foundation was initiated as a non-profit organisation.

Our website address is: http://www.worldfishmigrationfoundation.com

What is Eurofishion?

The EuroFishion song contest is an international song contest where contestants enter their original or remixed song about their love of rivers and fishes—a fishy love song!

Eurofishion is in no way associated with the European Song contest Eurovision.

This contest is a part of World Fish Migration Day! World Fish Migration Day is a one-day global celebration to create awareness about the importance of migratory fish and free-flowing rivers. Many rivers and fishes are in danger across the globe and it is our job to turn the tide to better protect them!
