Swim Up a Salmon Ladder! Coho at Capilano Salmon Hatchery, Vancouver, BC

Swim Up a Salmon Ladder!

Coho salmon swim up the salmon ladder back to the gravel beds  where they hatched.
The Capilano River in North Vancouver, British Columbia was dammed in 1954.  
Cleveland Dam blocks Capilano Lake for hydro power and fresh drinking water. This blocked the spawning ground stream beds for the native salmon.
Below is the first small dam to divert the salmon to the ladder.
It's really cool to see the salmon as they make their way upstream!
See the {above} "ladder step" to the left?
