    It Happens Out West Too!

    Central Saanich police are looking for whoever illegally dumped between 150 and 200 salmon at Thompson Place.

    The salmon, which appeared fairly fresh, were discovered in the 8200 block of Thompson Place, off Mount Newton Cross Road, on Tuesday, but might have been dumped over the weekend, said police spokesman Cpl. Dan Cottingham.

    Cottingham said investigators spoke with fisheries experts, who suspect the discarded fish were all males — undesirable for those wishing to harvest fish roe, or eggs, often used for sushi.

    The area was likely chosen because it’s fairly remote, Cottingham said. Police canvassed neighbours in the area, but no one saw anything.

    The municipality’s public works department will dispose of the fish.

    The person or people responsible could face a criminal charge of mischief, police said.

    Sad state of affairs.


    I am not trying to defend these lowlife, but maybe the mischief charge is only for the dumping of the fish. I would imagine the fines for poaching would be severe.
