Salmonid Interpretation Centre
The Exploits River is the longest and largest river on the island of Newfoundland that today boosts a healthy wild Atlantic salmon population. Located on this mighty river at the “Grand Falls” is one of the most impressive salmon enhancement projects in North America whose story is revealed at the Salmonid Interpretation Centre.
The highlight of your visit is seeing the “King of Fish” in its natural environment as they jump the speciality constructed salmon ladder fishway system to migrate upstream to reach spawning habitat. If you prefer to get ‘up-close’ with an underground river experience visit our lower-level underwater observation area. Our knowledgeable and passionate team members are also on hand to enhance your visit with information and education for a ‘fish-tabulous” experience.
