Salmonid Enhancement
Seven species of salmonids; coho, chum, chinook, pink, sockeye, steelhead and cutthroat, are the focus of the federal government’s Salmonid Enhancement Program (SEP). The program was launched in 1977 with the aim of restoring the population of salmonids to their historic levels. The hatcheries, fishways, spawning channels and other facilities where fish may be seen are a major part of that effort.

Natural runs of salmon also occur in many provincial waterways. The most famous of these is the Adams River sockeye run. Its four-year cycle peaks in the fall of 1998 and every four years thereafter.

If you should come across any stream hosting a salmonid run, please do not disturb or harass the fish. The salmonids are a precious resource and spawners are our assurance that they will frequent these waters for generations to come.
