Big Qualicum Hatchery

_DSC0041

There are a good number of active and closed salmonid hatcheries on Vancouver Island. The closed ones are sad, and the one’s that remain may be threatened by budget cutbacks. On this day I stopped at the Big Qualicum Hatchery as it is one of the best to see the life cycle of salmon, and the efforts to ensure their survival.
