KINGFISHER INTERPRETIVE CENTER
The Kingfisher Interpretive Centre Society (KICS) is a not-for profit, volunteer driven community based salmon hatchery and environmental education centre. KICS was established almost three decades ago in response to the near extinction of salmon stocks in the Shuswap River. Their efforts have led to an increase in salmon stocks and the return of recreational sportfishing in the Shuswap region.
KingFisher donates the use of an 1875 Extreme Shallow for the annual Egg Take. The Egg Take is a key component to healthy salmon stocks.
