Located in North Vancouver, the Seymour Salmonid Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the fish populations of the Seymour River.  Salmon are important to our environment and our local stocks are assisted by protecting existing and creating new habitat. Since its inception, the society has created over 40,000 square meters of habitat below the Seymour Falls dam to assist in the revitalization of the salmon population in the Seymour.

The society promotes environmental awareness and aims to educate British Columbians about the value of the Seymour River and salmonids. Gently Down the Seymour, the society’s largest education program,  gives elementary students a unique, hands-on learning experience at the salmon hatchery and the opportunity to observe salmon in their natural habitat. The society is proud of their work with children and works tirelessly to raise the funds needed to provide this program for free.

Like many community organizations, the society depends heavily on volunteers. Without their involvement it would be impossible to achieve many of their objectives. There are a number of activities including fish releases, egg collecting, and fin clipping that volunteers are able to help with throughout the year. Anyone can be a volunteer and there is no experience required.

North Shore residents interested in volunteering or visiting the hatchery should visit the society’s website to learn more.

Neptune Terminals is a proud supporter of the Seymour Salmonid Society and the work the organization is doing to conserve the fish and habitat of the Seymour River.
