The Seymour River Fish Hatchery and Education Centre is operated by the Seymour Salmonid Society, which was formed in 1987, when the British Columbia Institute of Technology turned over the responsibility of running the hatchery to the newly-created society.
The Seymour River Fish Hatchery is situated in the beautiful Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Seymour River Fish Hatchery plays a vital role in sustaining fish stocks and creating fish habitat, which have both been declining since the construction of the Seymour Falls Dam. Although the dam ensures that residents in the Vancouver area have good, clean drinking water, it has taken away 20 miles of fish habitat; a loss of habitat that represents about 60% of the river and 90% of their original spawning grounds.
The Seymour Salmonid Society has a working relationship with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Greater Vancouver Regional District, and many schools, colleges, businesses and other conservation groups. The society also relies on the continuing support of our many volunteers, sponsors, and members. Help us restore the Seymour by becoming a member.
