Gorgeous Male Coho on Byrne Creek

We spotted this stunning male coho on our patrol for spawning salmon today on Byrne Creek in SE #Burnaby. Unfortunately it appeared not to have spawned, for when we processed it the milt sacs appeared firm and full.

NOTE: It’s illegal to interfere with spawning salmon. Streamkeepers have training and permission to monitor returning salmon, and assess them for species, sex, size, and spawning status after they die.
