The Maritime Museum of BC is thrilled to announce that it will be home to an exhibit titled Salmon Tales: How Fishing Shaped BC from 6 April -28 October, 2023.


About the Exhibit

Whether it was to feed a family or for the pride that came with catching the biggest fish of the season, salmon looms large in the cultural consciousness of BC. These iconic fish have nourished us, driven innovation, and been a way of life for so many.

“Explore how our relationship with salmon has evolved and what we can do to protect it into the future,” said Collections and Exhibits Manager Heather Feeney.

Visit the Maritime Museum of BC to dive into the history of how the people of BC have fished from traps to nets to lures. Salmon Tales features stories of those who changed the way we fish as well as those who have dedicated their lives to the thrill of the catch.
