Welcome to Salmon's World!

It's all about salmon here at the Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre. Our interpretive gallery features aquaria, a fun-filled habitat display complete with woody debris and many of our salmon's prey and predators, and information on challenges to salmon survival in freshwater and ocean environments.

Regular workshops and courses on stream stewardship, habitat enhancement and fish culture are held in the classroom, and tours of the hatchery will open your eyes to a world of salmon that few people get the chance to see. 

Watch the events calendar for announcements about  children's programs, community events and tours! Learn about the life cycle of the salmon and what you can do to help salmon survive some of the many challenges they face throughout their lives.
