Chinook use new spawning habitat in the Campbell River Watershed
Increasing spawning habitat in the lower Campbell River Watershed
Spawning Chinook are using a new 2,100 m2 spawning platform installed 600 m downstream from the John Hart Generating Station in the Campbell River. Snorkel swims by Fisheries and Oceans Canada recorded spawning chinook at the site, which is estimated to increase spawning habitat for about 210 pairs of Chinook and benefit chum and pink salmon. The platform features large boulders to provide a refuge for fish and 3,300 metric tonnes of washed and screened gravel. The project was led by Campbell River Salmon Foundation with funding from the FWCP.
