Fish Releases

The last few weeks have been very busy at our hatchery! We have just completed adipose fin clipping more than 300k Coho fry. These fish contribute to a marked only fishery in our area. We also coded wire tagged 80k for stock assessment purposes. If you catch a marked fish(adipose fin missing) you are supposed to turn the head in so it can be checked for the presence of a  coded wire tag.

In addition to Coho production we have been busy with Chinook releases. In the last couple of weeks we have released 872k into Lang, 71k to Sechelt, 40k to Texada, and 40k to Willingdon!  Have a look in our photo archive under 2010 for some random pictures of our recent activities. Dont be afraid to ask questions or leave comments. Cheers.
