Seymour River Fish Hatchery & Education Centre

We enhance salmon populations and encourage sustainable management of fisheries in the Seymour River. Our mission is to educate everyone about the value of the Seymour River and the salmonids it supports as a resource for everyone living in British Columbia.

  • Each year we raise 30,000 Steelhead and 120,000 Coho.
  • Every second year about 500,000 Pinks and 500,000 Chum are released into the Seymour Watershed
  • Our 'Gently Down the Seymour' Education Program teaches elementary school students about this life cycle.

First off, the road to the hatchery is not open to the public. If you are volunteering we will leave your name with the attendant at the Rice Lake Gatehouse and they will allow you up the access road. See this MAP to view the route.

Below see the Google Map locator showing where we are.
