Another Busy Week at Lang Creek Counting Fence

Last week was another busy one at Lang Creek. The Chum in particular poured it on Friday and Saturday with totals now over 16 000! Our crew worked hard to capture another few Chinook of which the eggs were stripped and taken to our Mill Hatchery. With so many Chum returning and the water flows low, many of the fish were counted right through the fence itself. Here is a link of our enhancement team counting Chum while keeping an eye open for Chinook.

Here is another view of the fish passing over the newly installed Lang Creek Sill on which our counting fence sits.

Thank You for your support!

    Well all I can say is PSf should be pleased with these results I can’t believe the ease that these fish are travelling throught the centre with new place bottom
    Plus the ablility to count and take fish if they are needed. Good Idea Alex and great work by our team here in powell River !
    One real happy Director here and by the way our Dinner fundraiser was a great success saturday full house and raised over $40,000 at the event.

    Thanks for your concern Myrna. Pacific Salmon all die after they spawn. It is the end of their lifecycle. The carcasses contribute valuable nutrients back into the ecosystem that will help produce a favourable environment for the newly hatched fry in the spring.
