The river's name comes from a Halkomelem word meaning "stinking of fish slime".
A traditional story tells of the Coquitlam people selling themselves into slavery during a winter famine.
While butchering salmon for their masters they would be covered with fish slime.
Each year hundreds of salmon return to spawn in the Coquitlam River.
