Stream to Sea.

Since 2021 we are proud to announce that Seaquaria is coordinating the Stream to Sea program on Vancouver Island and the Southern Gulf Islands!

For more than 30 years, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has supported educators in British Columbia and the Yukon who teach their students to understand, respect and protect freshwater, estuarine and marine ecosystems, and to recognize how all humans are linked to these complex environments.

The Stream to Sea strategy guides DFO’s Ecosystem Management Branch – Stream to Sea education program.

See below for what Seaquaria is offering through this program!

Classroom Incubation Program.

Students in BC schools raise salmon in their classrooms from eggs to alevin to fry. Participants will receive an aquarium, materials and educational resources to support their classrooms.

Already have an incubation tank? You can find manuals, resources, video tutorials, checklists, and guides on raising your salmon on the Salmon In Schools website created by Kate McDonald. 

Storm Drain Marking.

Storm drain marking is a conservation and education project developed by Fisheries and Oceans Canada. The fish are often painted by local residents and children who care about our local streams. Brochures are then handed out door-to-door in the community to explain the program. 

Seaquaria lends out storm drain marking kits to classrooms, communities, and for community members. Contact us at to receive a kit!


Salmonid Presentations.

Our salmonid presentations features an hour with a Seaquaria educator virtually or in person*! For an hour, students will learn and discuss topics around salmon lifecycle and health, watersheds, and habitat needs. 

This is presentation can be customized to suit your needs.
