Fisheries exhibit

The Fisheries display at Hell’s Gate is home to our award winning video “Run Sockeye Run”. This documentary won a bronze award at the New York City film festival for best short ecological film.

There are two other short films: 'Thunder in the Canyon‘ – a white water tribute to Simon Fraser. See first hand where the early explorer Simon Fraser scaled the Canyon walls except from a slightly different perspective, aboard a white water raft! And the other film is ‘Fraser Canyon Gold‘ – prospectors still believe there’s “gold in dem dare hills!” see why and where in this historic short film.

Our display is set up in a very simple way so that the whole family can learn and see first hand how a salmon spends it’s life from beginning to end.

Fraser River like never before
