Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre

Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre

Subvision Production finished the first part of filming at the Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre in Port Hardy.  The weather, the crew of the stewardship centre and the salmon could not have been more cooperative.

The Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre is located in the beautiful northern part of Vancouver Island close to Port Hardy.  As part of NVISEA (Northern Vancouver Island Salmon Enhancement Association) the centre has been active since 1983. In 2008 the new centre was opened with increased facilities and the learning centre. Surrounded by forest and many salmon bearing creeks and rivers it is an ideal base of operation for salmon enhancement and conservation

The project is set to produce and educational inspiring and informative video which is going to be showed in the stewardship mini cinema. The  stewardship centre has been at the heart of enhancing and conserving a number of Pacific salmon species. These species are Pink, Coho, Chinook and Chum salmon. In addition they also enhance Steelhead salmon in the Marble river.

Part of the video is going to be the history and work of the Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre. Another important element is of course the life cycle of the salmon from eggs to the moment they expire after spawning.

The second part of the project is to be filmed in February or March 2019 after which the final product is to be delivered. It will be part of the 10 year anniversary of the centre in September of 2019. In the mean time the award winning 7 minute short “I am salmon” will be featured in their mini cinema.

Subvision Productions was chosen to create the video based on its long standing track record in underwater and environment video and photo work.
