The Pacific Jemm coming into dock at sunset. We can't wait for the light evenings to come and the beautiful sunsets Queenstown provides.
It’s that truly magical time of year when wild salmon begin swimming up river to their natal spawning grounds to lay eggs. It is at this time that Doug Palfrey of the Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society and a team of volunteers harvest eggs from ripe females on the Bedwell River and side channels, which they take back to the hatchery to fertilize, incubate and raise over the winter. The process is extremely tedious and we’re forever grateful to Doug and the TSES for their hard work and commitment to enhancing our wild salmon stocks. The team collected 38,000 chinook eggs total last week. Special thanks to the crew of volunteers this year: Carallyn, Crystal, Ethan, Phoenix, Owen, Marthe, Finn and Jeff. And thanks to Carallyn for these photos!
