Salmon Tales In The Wild – Salmon Tales On The Farm
Spawning salmon are remarkable. They make a trek from their place of birth in a river bed to the ocean where they live out their lives and then, when the time is right, they trek hundreds or thousands of kilometers back to their place of birth in order to lay their eggs and perpetuate their species.
