Educational Tours
 
The Miramichi Salmon Conservation Centre offers free educational tours to school children in New Brunswick.  The amazing life cycle of the Atlantic salmon is explained to the children as they see the various life stages, in a full production hatchery environment.  Each season adds to the highlite of the tour, with the most excitement generated when the large adult salmon are stripped of their eggs and fertilized.  Most tours last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the age group and special attractions that may be occurring.  Please book in advance by calling (506) 622-1781.
