Sockeye salmon

Detailed Description

Sockeye salmon swimming in a stream habitat. They can be defined by their fang like teet and large snout on males. Sockeye Salmon are unique when compared to other salmon in the pacific northwest because they travel from their spawning grounds in streams to lakes. After spending one to two years in a lake they migrate to the ocean only to return to the same stream they were born in.
