West Coast Aquatic Stewardship Association was created in 2002 by a group of concerned citizens in order to preserve, protect and enhance aquatic species and their natural habitat. In the last three years the organization has conducted over a million dollars of habitat restoration projects as well as salmon enhancement improvements. The WCASA runs with four primary pillars including; habitat restoration, species enhancement, protection and education/stewardship. The Alberni Aquarium was developed under the Education branch and opened to the public on May 1, 2016.
