Construction of the Macaulay Salmon Hatchery was completed in 1989 at a capital cost of $7.4 million. The hatchery is permitted to incubate 121 million chum, 50 million pink, 1.5 million coho and 950,000 chinook salmon annually. The facility provides a diversity of enhancement programs that benefit commercial, sport and subsistence users of the salmon resources as well as producing harvestable surpluses of fish for cost recovery.
