Celebrate the end of the Wetlab season with our River Project team and bid farewell to the wonderful wildlife that served as marine ambassadors this year.
The Wetlab is a research aquarium that houses dozens of species of fish and invertebrates all caught within the Park as part of our ongoing Fish Ecology Survey. During the season, it features a rotating exhibit of animals that are released regularly to ensure that their behaviors are minimally impacted.
Join our River Project during Release of the Fishes from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Wetlab, located on the Pier 40 South Walkway. During Release of the Fishes, 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 River Project team will be teaching visitors about our outgoing residents, leading kid-friendly crafts and activities and showcasing the Park’s ongoing research and education initiatives.
