Kokanee Salmon Workshop

October 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Spawning Kokanee Salmon are returning to the shorelines of Kootenay Lake and recording this data is crucial to understanding Kokanee populations and their reproductive success!

As part of our Shore-Spawning Kokanee Habitat Restoration & Research Project we are offering a free training workshop to teach local community members how to identify Shore-spawning Kokanee Salmon and their redds. Kokanee Salmon are in decline in Kootenay Lake, and collecting this data is important for Kokanee recovery.

Instructor: Retired Fisheries Biologist and FoKLSS volunteer Gary Munro

Meeting Location: McDonald’s Landing Regional Park, then heading to Bonaventure Trailer Park around 11 a.m. to see another spawning site.
