The Salmonid Enhancement Program (SEP) plays an important role to conserve and manage Pacific salmon stocks. The activities aim to rebuild vulnerable salmon stocks, provide harvest opportunities, work with First Nations and coastal communities in economic development, and improve fish habitat to sustain salmon populations. 


"One of the last pristine ecosystems on Earth. World-class wildlife where the rainforest meets Pacific Ocean. Coastal First Nations culture and stewardship. Boating, adventure, eco-tourism and responsible saltwater angling. Tales from Great Bear...on British Columbia's Wild Central Coast!"


This movie doesn't even do justice to the magnificent beauty of this landscape. Without a doubt one of the most wonderful and wild places left in the world!

Wild salmon stocks are in critical decline.

Wild salmon stocks the world over are in decline. Many species of wild salmon are at risk and research shows wild salmon are negatively impacted wherever there are open-net pen salmon farms....

Precaution against disease is necessary.

The precautionary principle provides that there is a social responsibility to prevent harm, when it is within our power to do so, even when all the evidence is not in.....

Sea lice have spread to our wild salmon.

Sea lice are parasites that cause serious harm to salmon. Sea lice incubate in the dense confines of commercial open-net pen farms and then emerge directly into the path of young migrating salmon....

We can have sustainable, land-based contained aquaculture.

It is our duty to reduce the risk that open-net pet farms pose to wild salmon. Fortunately, there is an alternative to how salmon are currently farmed off of British Columbia’s coast....


Today was an exciting day at the PWH. For the first time in awhile we took a good look at our Wannock Chinook trays and we are happy to report that we now have a couple of trays that have buttoned up. In a short time we will have free swimming fry out in our tanks. We will be sure to update as things progress.
