The Alex Dobler Salmon Centre is located just above the estuary on Lang Creek on the Sunshine Coast of BC. This site has a spawning channel with multiple areas where you can view the Salmon, a hatchery building and a large area for outdoor learning. Take a stroll around the hatchery grounds and read some of the many signs that are there to educate you on Salmon Preservation. Since Lang Creek feeds right into the Malaspina Strait and then out to the Pacific Ocean that makes it a doorway for the returning Salmon making their way back home to spawn. Visiting here in the late fall months is an absolute must as you get to witness the spawning channel full of the returning Salmon that have made their way back to the spawning grounds!

Water temperature and fish. Did you know that during all life stages of the Salmon that they need cool water temperatures to survive. Water that is too warm has less oxygen meaning they can't survive in it.
