For the second year in a row, the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club (SFGC) has teamed up with Penmar Community Arts Society (Penmar) to raise funds for a new hatchery building through the Salmon Sessions Music Festival.

The current hatchery building has been subjected to years of flooding over its nearly 40-year history. During the devastating atmospheric river floods of 2021, the hatchery was further damaged and tens of thousands of fish eggs were destroyed when the building was under three feet of water.

SFGC is planning to construct a new building on higher ground – safe from the flooding hazards of the future. As well, it will modernize its equipment and operating systems to grow even more. It is estimated that each year, the SFGC hatchery releases an additional 100,000 salmon into the river system – over the past 40 years that equates to approximately 35 - 40 million salmon.

Now that’s a conservation story!

Sleepy Gonzales premierd the video of their three favorite songs from the performance and then had a live Q&A with fans.



155 shows over a year in three venues. Performances included local showcases in a variety of genres, comedy nights, cultural events and a corporate battle of the bands. Genres encompassed were rock, country, funk, metal, punk, tributes and urban.



Not all Penmar events are music related, we often put together other community engaging projects and events such as the Five Corners Bingo. Weekly Bingo every Wednesday at Star of the Sea Community Centre.
