A flash of silver in the water. A tug on the line. 

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. 

Salmon Tales takes a dive into the history of how the people of BC have fished from traps to nets to lures. It 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. 

Join us at the Maritime Museum of BC to explore how our relationship with salmon has evolved and what we can do to protect it into the future.
