Central Saanich Police are looking into an incident involving the dumping of approximately 150 to 200 salmon that were found in the 8200 block of Thompson Place.
A man walking by noticed the salmon on Tuesday and reported his sighting to police.
Corporal Dan Cottingham said the salmon appeared to be fairly fresh and were presumably dumped some time over the weekend.
The salmon were cleaned up Tuesday before things got stinky.
Anyone who has information on possible suspects is asked to call Central Saanich Police at 250 652 4441 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
