Last Friday, members of Cowichan tribes trucked adult and juvenile Chinook salmon to Lake Cowichan and released the 30 fish into the lake.

Members of the media were on hand to witness as the fish were netted, processed and released. The large adults were too big to be transferred by the normal methods used for fry, and so had to be released by hand.
