Description:

Inch Creek Hatchery is a large Fisheries and Oceans Canada facility that rebuilds local Chum, Coho, Chinook and steelhead runs, as well as, Pitt River Sockeye and the endangered Cultus Lake Sockeye.  Hundreds of Coho and Chum salmon return to the hatchery and you can see them actively spawning in the hatchery creek entrance.  You can also view one of the prehistoric wonders of the Fraser River, two adult sturgeons over 6 feet in length that make their home in the hatchery pond.  Education displays and materials will be set up, and fisheries technicians are available to show you around and answer questions regarding all the enhancement work based at Inch Creek Hatchery.
