On Wednesday, November 28, the Vancouver Park Board, with the help of members of the Vancouver Aquarium, removed the remaining adult and juvenile koi from the water in the classic Chinese garden. Sun Yat-Sen.

The Vancouver Park Board shared with the media that there were no signs of otter for days, although a number of traps remain in the garden. Employees will also modify the entrance and exit points of the garden to discourage possible visits to the otter.
Good news: We chose the rest of the adult and juvenile koi @vangarden today. Now swim safely @vanaqua. No signs of otter for the past three days, but live traps remain in place. Open the garden again tomorrow. # OtterWatch2018 pic.twitter.com/32NkZabpQ9
