Sockeye-Salmon

This is a sockeye-salmon.

Salmon lays eggs in fresh water.

The eggs develop and when the

young hatch out from the egg,

they are known as alevins.

At the next stage they need to find

their own food and are called fry.

At the stage where the young fish, develop camouflage, they are

called parr. They continue to live in fresh water for up to three years

and at this point they are called smolt.

The smolt then migrate to the salt water ocean where they live

until they grow into mature salmon. In spring, the mature salmon

migrate back to the fresh water to breed and die.

You can see images of the life cycle of a salmon by following the link www.goldseal.ca/wildsalmon/life_cycle.asp
