Protect Nicomekl River's Biodiversity and i question the City of Surrey's decision to expropriate the Riverside Golf lands,situated adjacent to the banks of the Nicomekl River.

Nicomekl River's History Since 1991, NES has incubated, raised and released over 3 million salmon – Chinook (red and white), Coho, Chum, and Pink into the Nicomekl River and it’s many tributaries within the municipalities of Township of Langley, City of Langley and City of Surrey. NES first success came in 1994 when the first Chum salmon returned to spawn near our hatchery site after an absence of 80 years. This achievement was followed in 2006 with DFO declaring the Nicomekl River “sustainable” for sports fishing retention for 1 each hatchery Coho and Chinook. Previously, retention had not been permitted for over 20 years. The Nicomekl Enhancement Society (NES) currently at 60 members incorporated on April 4th, 1991 under the Society Act having originally formed 1989 as a small scale volunteer salmon hatchery named: “ Fish for your Future.” Nicomekl Enhancement Society (NES) website:http://nicomeklhatchery.com/cgi/wp/ History: http://nicomeklhatchery.com/cgi/wp/?page_id=14 Please watch this video: Salmon Confidential explaining the importance of protecting our wild salmon.
