Fish in the Hudson River? You bet! More than 200 species of fish are found in the Hudson River and its tributaries. Fish On! introduces students to life under the Hudson River through activities such as observing and classifying live fish specimens, fish dissection (optional for older grades), life cycle crafts (for younger grades) and an all-time favorite–catch and release fishing.
