Steveston Historic Fishing Village – Salmonopolis

Vancouver, Coast & Mountains

Four years ago, 30 million salmon made their way to the waters of British Columbia’s coast. In the historic fishing village of Steveston, Canada’s largest active fishing port, this was the best salmon run in a century. For visitors, witnessing this natural phenomenon was the experience of a lifetime, and a glimpse into the historic past of the village, once nicknamed Salmonopolis. This year salmon-lovers are buzzing with anticipation, as officials are predicting a repeat where hundreds of excited buyers will flock to the fisherman’s wharf in search of the catch of the day and Richmond’s famed restaurants will take this bountiful harvest from sea to skillet.
