This short video clip was filmed with a GoPro by Oliver Jähnichen. Oliver has been contributing data to our Pender Harbour Coastal Waters Monitoring Program, funded by the #sitkafoundation, and gaining excellent field experience towards his university conservation program in Germany.
The video clip features salmon returning to Anderson and Myers creeks, with several chum hiding under cut banks and one narly coho salmon facing down the camera. Active spawning can be observed easily from John Daly Park viewing platforms. Chum continue to enter streams this week with the arrival of rain and we hope to enumerate more coho in weeks to come.
