Fish Protection and Programs
Surrey has approximately 1400 kilometres of urban watercourses running through its neighbourhoods, parklands and alongside roads. These streams provide spawning and rearing habitat for 5 species of salmon and trout, and a variety of wildlife. Visit the streams at the right time of the year and you will luck out by seeing spawning salmon returning to their home streams from their long journey in the Pacific Ocean. In one season, over 900 spawning Chum salmon have been observed in Bear Creek in Bear Creek Park!
Join the building community of stream stewards in the city and participate in activities to protect and enhance stream habitat for local salmon and trout. Stream stewards work to preserve Surrey's natural habitat for salmon and trout and many local schools, stewardship groups and government agencies are joining us to all take part in activities.
