Salmon Conservation Centre
We offer guided
tours of some the hatchery facilities. Not all of the facilities are open to the public because of contamination/disease risk
to the fish.
HATCHERY TOURS BEGIN JUNE 1 AND FINISH AUGUST 31, 2016.
$5.00 per adult
$3.00 per child
Family rate of $15.00
Special group tour rates (over 10 people = $3.00/person)
School tours are available at
During the tour, the brook trout
and salmon's life cycle will be explained as you view the current life stages at the hatchery. In 2016, all our
salmon fry will be stocked out by mid-July and our adult salmon collection for broodstock will begin in early September. During
the summer months the fish you will see are brook trout and perhaps some juvenile sturgeon. Tours are open 7 days per week, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, from June 1 to August 31. Tours are available
by request only during the rest of the year Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
The U-fish ponds will not
be operating in 2016 because of insufficient trout inventory.
