Don Beamin pulling the net across the Leiner River-your Salmon Enhancement $$ bought the boat & motor for The Tahsis Salmon Enhancement Society
Nearly 300 fish are in the net. Chinook, Chum & Coho. The Chinook are not ready to be spawned, but will be taken to the recently rebuilt holding ponds, at the Tahsis hatchery, to await egg ripenings. Why are they getting them now? - Answer is a huge weather event is about to hit the area that will spread the fish out & move them up river where it is very difficult to catch them safely. Nearly 20 volunteers participated. Pictured is Cameron, Wade, Tysyn, Danielle & others.
In the tank goes this fine Doe. With the help of Mogens Madsen, Jim Horvath, & Frank Collins
