The Port Albert Fishway (PAF) was constructed at the historical mill dam in the village of Port Albert to allow the passage of spawning fish to upstream coldwater streams in the Nine Mile River Watershed. The PAF building houses a self-guided display that explains the importance of the fishway to the fishery in the watershed. Fall runs of pacific salmon (Chinook, coho, and pink) as well as rainbow and brown trout occur from mid-September until the end of November. There are also murals depicting the history of Port Albert onsite.
