Work is well underway to get a rebuilt Mossom Creek Hatchery rebuilt and running in time for salmon season, representatives from the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society, told PoMo council. But another $150,000 is needed to build the shell of the building and another $250,000 to outfit it.

Project manager Pat Dennett told Port Moody councillors Tuesday that the building plans have been scaled back to make fundraising easier and to fit community expectations, and plans are in the works to start construction in July.

A fundraising barbecue and auction are also planned to help raise money for the project. Tickets are available here and cost $45 for a gourmet salmon meal. The event will take place Sunday, July 13 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in the Galleria at PoMo city hall. Tickets are also available calling 604-787-9758. Volunteer and hatchery founder Ruth Foster also said donations are needed for the auction.
