Capilano River Hatchery

A visit to the Capilano River Hatchery, is an excellent way to learn hands on about the life cycle of the local Coho and Steelhead Salmon.   Learn about salmon sustainability practices of the hatchery and local area.  Depending on the season, you may see juvenile salmon and trout in the display aquaria for mature returning salmon in the fish ladder. Be sure to visit the “Fishway” in the observation gallery, where you can see how salmon climb the fish ladders by jumping from one pool to the next. It’s truly exciting for children and adults alike!
