Video: The State of the Nanaimo River Hatchery

The Nanaimo River hatchery was initiated in 1978 to maximize benefits to the local fishers and restore Nanaimo River chum, coho, and Chinook stocks.

In this video, I talk about the Nanaimo River Hatchery on Vancouver Island, and interview Brain Hermann, Assistant Manager. We discuss the current state of the hatchery, its stagnated funding from the 90’s, and its challenges to maintain operation. The Nanaimo Hatchery is unfortunately not known to many, despite the hatchery’s importance to the ecosystem and locality.
