FROM SEA TO SOURCE is the result of collaborations and partnerships with fisheries professionals all over the world, drawn together to provide a major new text on the theme of fish migration. The underlying concept is the increasingly recognised need for preservation but, more frequently, the restoration of free migration for all species of fish.FROM SEA TO SOURCE guidance books are the result of collaborations and partnerships with over 100 fisheries professionals all over the world, drawn together to provide support on the theme of fish migration. They seek to educate, inform and inspire people who work on the preservation and restoration of migratory fish populations.
Working together with international fish experts, we have also included details on some of these iconic migratory fish species and other less well-known fish from around the world. This can be used to draw much-needed attention to these species and the pressures they face. The guidance books inform the reader how to meet the challenges that lie behind the restoration of fish migration in rivers around the world. Whether the challenge is to increase access to spawning habitats through connectivity improvements or to maintain the livelihoods for hundreds of millions of people dependent upon fish in the great rivers of Asia, Africa and South America, we hope our books would help to achieve these goals.
The first FROM SEA TO SOURCE was launched at the International Ecohydraulics Symposium in Vienna in September 2012, and subsequently also at Sympass Fish Passage Conference in Brazil and the Living North Sea Event in the UK. The second FROM SEA TO SOURCE was launched on World Fish Migration Day on 21 April 2018.
