My wife thought she would see a big salmon, I told her that they had all died off now and only the little fry are left. We looked in some tanks and yes millions of little ones. I had to ask one of the workers what they fed them and he went into detail how and what they were fed.... 更多
After reading the positive reviews for this hatchery I expected more from our visit in late November. It was open to the public but nothing was going on and only a couple of distant workers could be seen. Most tanks seemed empty and although there is apparently a Rotary walk (there is a big sign to mark its existence) we... 更多
It is a non guided tour, so you need to follow the leaflet you find at the entrance of the exhibition room. When we were there on Sept 7th there was no activity, all the basins (except for one) were empty so we took a walk to the river and watched the salmons gather in front of the lock. All... 更多

I also used to take the families with small children from a program I run in town up here each October and we always had so much fun watching the... 更多
On the way back from the elk fall provincial park, we stumble upon this place and decide to check it out. This place is open from 8 to 3:30 p.m. The kids get to see the salmons swimming on the shallow water.
