The Brooklyn Creek Watershed Society (BCWS) is sponsoring a photo reward. We know from experience that salmon are here in the spring as little smolts and in the fall as adult spawning fish several years later. However, many neighbours and visitors have never witnessed the adult salmon returning to the creek.
We are offering a cash award of $200.00 for a clear picture of adult coho salmon in Brooklyn Creek.
The contest ends when a suitable photo has been chosen from submissions by email to:
We need to see a clear photograph of free-swimming (unhooked) adult coho salmon swimming and/or jumping rapids or the fish-ladder in Brooklyn Creek. We also need evidence that this picture was actually taken here, so we need a background that can be identified as Brooklyn Creek.
We have a November 2019 submission (see photo) that was a dead coho, not accepted for this contest. However, it was proof that coho are in the creek!
We welcome your submissions. Watch and click!
