World Fish Migration Platform
In an effort to draw on this energy and to continue communication efforts, the WFMD2014 Partnership also launched the World Fish Migration Platform (WFMP) on May 24th. The partnership includes: Wanningen Water Consult, LINKit Consult, WWF, The Nature Conservancy, Waterschap AGV and IUCN SSC/WI Freshwater Fish Specialist Group.
The intention is to use WFMP to continue stimulating efforts to Create Awareness, Share Knowledge and Build Solid Networks on a global scale around the themes of fish migration and free-flowing rivers.
Thanks to this platform we will all be able to assimilate, review and distribute crucial information (much of it not well known for many people) like updated data of dam removals in the world (e.g. almost 1200 dams have been removed in USA & 660 were have been removed since 1999), the opinions of experts on fishways, and much more.
Watch this space… The WFMD2014 was only the beginning!!
