Event Details

Striped bass and bluefish and fluke, oh my! Now in its third year, this hugely popular, all-age, hands-on event is a celebration of the marine life in the waters surrounding our five boroughs. Top marine biologists and scientists will work with you and your kids to discover–and count–the many species of fish and marine creatures (even seahorses) right here in our own city waterways. No net needed. We’ll provide everything, including waders. Just head on down and help us count.

The Great Fish Count is FREE and open to the public. RSVP not required, but encouraged.

World Science Festival

The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows a broad general audience to engage with scientific discoveries. Through discussions, debates, theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, intimate salons, and major outdoor experiences, the Festival takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and premier performing arts venues of New York City and beyond. Hailed a “new cultural institution” by The New York Times, the Festival has featured Alan Alda, Joshua Bell, Chuck Close, Glenn Close, Sylvia Earle, Philip Glass, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Stephen Hawking, John Hockenberry, Bill T. Jones, Charlie Kaufman, Mary-Claire King, Eric Lander, Richard Leakey, John Lithgow, Yo-Yo Ma, Bobby McFerrin, Oliver Sacks, Liev Schreiber, Anna Deavere Smith, Julie Taymor, E.O. Wilson, and Nobel Laureates David Baltimore, Steven Chu, David Gross, Eric Kande, Leon Lederman, Paul Nurse, John C. Mather, Steven Weinberg, Frank Wilczek, among many others luminaries in science and the arts.
