Welcome to the Pacific Coast
Salmon Fisheries Website

How our site works.

This site has been designed particularly for the use of Canadian teachers and school children, however, we are confident that everyone will find something of interest within the site. Please feel free to explore throughout this site and learn something about Salmon, their habitat, and the story of our relationship with these creatures, which are such an integral part of life on the Pacific Coast.

On the bottom of our toolbar to the left is a link to our on-line Web magazine - the Creekside News. This magazine chronicles the initial phase of the restoration of Haig-Brown Kingfisher Creek in Campbell River, British Columbia. This creek is a Coho salmon spawning creek, and its restoration is the fulfilment of the dream of pioneer conservationist Roderick Haig-Brown, and his long time friend Van Egan. Phase 2 of the restoration project took place during the summer of 1998, and Phase 3 continues during the summer of 1999. We encourage you to read the magazine to learn more about this project and salmon habitat restoration.
