Fish of Battery Park City

The Hudson River is home to over 150 species of fish. BPCPC’s catch and release programs such as Go Fish! and our Marine Education field trips for NYC schools give people of all ages a chance to learn about the marine life in New York Harbor. BPCPC’s staff and volunteer master anglers have  kept a “life list” of each species caugh.  The list is below.

Visitors and fisherfolk are encouraged to send us photographs and/or details of their own catch.  Please send them to info@bpcparks.org.
