In 2020, six females from the declining Portage Creek Chinook population and 11 males were spawned, resulting in an egg take of 27,020, and about 4,000 offspring were safely released as healthy fry. The release was coordinated with, and attended by, St’át’imc Eco-Resources Ltd. The remaining 47,066 Portage Creek Chinook at the hatchery were successfully marked, tagged, and released as yearling smolts in May 2021.
