Release of the Fishes

HRPK's River Project

Celebrate the end of the Wetlab season online and in-person with our River Project team and bid farewell to the wonderful wildlife that served as marine ambassadors all summer long.

Our flow-through aquarium houses dozens of species of fish and invertebrates all caught within the Park as part of an ongoing ecological survey. The Wetlab is a rotating live exhibit as animals are released throughout the season to ensure that their behaviors are minimally impacted.

Join our River Project during Release of the Fishes from 3:00–6:00 PM to learn more about local wildlife. You can help us return our fish residents to the Hudson River as we are getting ready to close the Wetlab for the season. If you can’t make it to Pier 40, keep an eye out on Instagram Live and Facebook Live @hudsonriverpark because we will be streaming special behind-the-scenes footage during the event.

To ensure the safety of all patrons of Hudson River Park during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that anyone who is not vaccinated please wear a mask or face covering at Hudson River Park events when not able to maintain a six-foot distance from others.
