Ted Walkus is the hereditary chief of the Wuikinuxv Nation in Rivers Inlet. Walkus used a net to trap the pictured salmon in British Columbia’s Wannock River, and the Pacific Salmon Foundation shared their photo of Walkus holding the massive salmon. Here’s what their caption read:
Big fish for a big-hearted guy! We just had to share this pic of Ted Walkus, hereditary chief of the Wuikinuxv Nation in Rivers Inlet, B.C. This Chinook was captured for brood stock to raise the next generation of Wannock Chinook at the Percy Walkus Hatchery. Spread those good genetics around!
You won’t see this fish on a dinner plate, as they kept it as brood stock. There is no weight given on the fish, so how much do YOU think it weighs?
