Our New Broods Photo Story (Click on any image for full slide view)
The photos below highlight the beginnings of our new broods of coho and chinook salmon
and indicate the work efforts required by DFO personnel and PCDHFC volunteers
preserve salmon stocks in the Coquitlam River.
Such people have performed similar activities every year since 1980 for all salmon species except sockeye. The sizeable runs of salmon, that now return each fall, exist because of their ongoing, dedicated efforts. Estimated run sizes this year are 4,000 chinook, 3,000 coho, 20,000 chum and 8,000 pink salmon. Our Al Grist Memorial Hatchery has been instrumental in the recovery of all these runs.
