Counting Salmon at Kirby Creek (1997-1999)

WFT teamed up with local partners to build a salmon counting fence in Kirby Creek, a Coho-producing stream in Sooke, British Columbia.

How do you tell how many salmon are out there? One way is to count how many are caught. But to manage salmon properly, you also need to know how many are going up the river to spawn. For that, you need a counting fence.

WFT teamed up with local partners to build a counting fence in Kirby Creek, a Coho-producing stream in Sooke, British Columbia. The fence was operated by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and local groups to help monitor the health of local stocks until 2003.

In partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and local groups

With support from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, the Shell Environmental Fund, Western Forest Products Ltd., Scott Plastics Ltd. and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
