We operate a volunteer salmon hatchery returning about 80000 coho fry to local streams each year. We have 27 school classrooms participate in our program raising fish in their schools as part of the Salmonid Enhancement Program. These students are involved in taking the eggs from the spawners and fertilizing them on site. The eggs are paced in the heath trays where they incubate over the winter. These fish are released into local streams in the Spring. High school students are involved in stream surveys in the Fall. counting returning spawners. The data is submitted to DFO. Our groups puts in over 1000 hours of volunteer time per year and no one receives remuneration.
