From Sea to Source 2.0

This new book released on World Fish Migration Day (April 21) provides a practical guide to tackle the threat of dams and promoting the protection and restoration of fish migration in rivers worldwide. “From sea to source 2.0” is a unique collaboration of over 100 international fisheries professionals and is supported by river managers, governments, research institutes and NGOs including WWF and the Nature Conservatory. Aimed at practitioners but also a wonderful resource for the general public, the book is full of inspiring stories, hard lessons learned and great successes from nearly every continent on the planet. The book can be downloaded for free at


This is the second edition of a global reference book on the protection and restoration of migratory fish worldwide. It is a follow up to the first global “From Sea to Source Guidance” (published in 2012), which was written in order to inspire decision makers and thers working to reverse the global trend of declining migratory fish stocks around the world. Encouraged by the success of the first edition and expanding recent developments in the field, the World Fish Migration Foundation and their partners decided to update the version of 6 years ago with new and relevant information from around the world. Together with the valued support of our sponsors and input from numerous fish migration experts from around the world, this book is written with the ambition to continue to promote the field of fish migration on a global level in order to ensure that migratory fish stocks are protected and restored for future generations.
