Shrimp at Steveston

Down on the southwestern shore of Richmond sits the historic Steveston Village, a once-boisterous frontier seaport and principal port on the Fraser River, founded in 1880 by William Herbert Steves.

Now over 100 years old, Steveston has evolved into a picturesque working fishing village, home to Canada's largest commercial fishing fleet, home base to more than 600 seiners, gillnetters, trawlers and other vessels that line the docks two, sometimes three, abreast. A half hour drive from Vancouver gets you fresh prawns for five dollars a pound.
