Every year the Whitehorse Fish Hatchery releases thousands of Chinook salmon.

The fish hatchery is owned by Yukon Energy which runs Whitehorse’s hydroelectric dam. While the dam has a fish ladder and other measures to prevent fish death, it’s believed to have an impact as it blocks the migration way.

Releasing new fish is a way to offset this.

The fish are released at the Wolf Creek Campground outside Whitehorse and children are encouraged to take part.
