Volunteer Fin Clippers needed
If you have a couple of hours to spare next week the Sunshine Coast Salmonid Enhancement Society which operates the Chapman Creek Hatchery needs your help to adipose fin clip 80000 coho salmon from Tues 20th March to Friday the 23 of March daily from 9:30 -3:00 at the Chapman Creek Hatchery–Lunch will be provided from 12:00-1:00
The adipose fin is clipped off so that our hatchery raised salmon can be distinguished from a ‘wild’ salmon when they are adults. Recreational fishermen are allowed to keep ‘hatchery’ raised salmon when they catch them, but can’t keep ‘wild’ salmon
A volunteer meeting will be held at the hatchery on Tues at 09:00 for scheduling for the week. Drop in volunteers are welcome at any time.
