Historical_seining for broodstock in Battle Creek

At the historical Battle Creek Fish Culture Station adult Chinook salmon were collected from Battle Creek using seine nets. The men on shore held one end of the net, while another man in a boat paddled backwards into the stream slowly stretching the net across the stream. The far end of the net would then be pulled back to shore to create a large circle. The adult fish captured would be used for spawning.
