Thanks to our fantastic volunteers and Sandie from the DFO who created this concrete salmon that is on display outside our hatchery in Shoreline Park in Port Moody.

Drop by the hatchery any time for a tour and a chat; we are open Monday to Saturday, from 9 – 11am.  If you are making a special visit, please call us at 604-469-9106 as sometimes our volunteers are out and about.  We are a 100% volunteer operated salmon hatchery, water quality laboratory and stewardship registered charity.  If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email portmoodyecologicalsociety @
