Purpose

If you’re anything like us, you probably need a quick vocab lesson before considering this cool event: seining is a type of fishing that uses a big net hanging vertically in the water (like a fence) trapping fish as the boat skims the surface. Head down to the Manhattan Bridge Beach with your little marine biologists and take a lesson from the experts of the Costal Marine Resource Center during Seining the River Wild presented by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy. Your kids will love identifying and learning about the critters combing the East River, like blue crabs, shrimp, bay anchovies and striped bass, among others. Sounds pretty tasty, but this fishing session ends with all the river friends released back into the water. Space is available for 30 squirts and their parents, and advance reservations are required.
