Capilano Salmon Hatchery, North Vancouver

#4 of 24 in Outdoors in North Vancouver
Forest Farm
Nestled in the heart of the Capilano River Regional Park sits Capilano Salmon Hatchery, a farm that works to protect coho, chinook, and steelhead salmon stocks. Look through the glass-walled fish tanks and witness salmon leaping a meter high up the fish ladder during their upstream migration. The farm offers an educational insight into how the fish develop from eggs until they are fully grown and released into the river spring. The lush park surroundings offer a perfect environment for hiking or having a picnic. Visit the gift shop operated by the Pacific Salmon Foundation.
