Bowen Island Fish & Wildlife Club (BIFWC) volunteers have been busy at the Terminal Creek Salmon Hatchery over the winter caring for chum and coho salmon. We’ve been moving 20,000 coho alevins, which are maturing to fry, from incubation trays to water troughs where they’ll begin feeding. On Friday, April 26, at about 5 p.m., we’ll be releasing chum fry raised at the hatchery into the lagoon near the causeway.
The BIFWC annual general meeting will be held in the Bill Rush Memorial Classroom at the hatchery from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, May 2. We’ll review 2018, discuss hatchery operations, and update attendees about key volunteer activities and salmon enhancement projects on Bowen Island.
Everyone is welcome to join us at the hatchery.
