This spring and early summer has brought so many gems for many to see. From the big marine mammals down to the smaller creatures in our eco-system. Here is a picture of a large school of anchovies that were seen from our docks. This species is a bait fish that many other animals feed on. Some examples being the Harbour Seals, Otters, Humpbacks and Salmon.

School of Anchovies

We also noticed that there were some very small fish, upon taking a sample and consulting with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Research team we are excited to discover that what we found was a late larval Northern Anchovy. Each year the marine diversity in Howe Sound is growing. It is very exciting to watch it happen right before our eyes.

Today we have a big school of Pink Salmon just off the entrance to the marina and many onlookers are enjoying watching our local seal Oreo and her newest offspring chase and catch their dinner. Salmon Fishing in the Vancouver area is hot! With three species of salmon (Coho, Chinook and Pinks) now swimming and feeding in our waters now is a good time to wet the line and catch some fresh salmon for the BBQ. Rent a boat or hire a guide excellent salmon fishing grounds are just minutes from our dock. http://www.sewellsmarina.com/fishing-charters/
