Salmon FAQs - 20 Found



About how many salmon from one spawning pair live from the time they're laid to the time they return as adults?

Each female salmon can have between 1,500 and 10,000 eggs. Only a few (0 to 10) of these eggs will survive to be adult salmon. A population maintaining its size only produces one adult from each parent on average (two adults from each spawning pair), but it will be higher in some years and lower in others.
