Pink Salmon Release - March 20, 2008
The DFO dropped off 170,000 young Pink Salmon into our troughs in the afternoon with the intention that they be released after sunset. At sunset a group of volunteers netted the young fish by the hundreds and put them in buckets. Then it was the quick trip to the creek and the beginning of a long journey for the fish.
