Salmon are amazing! They are born in fresh water, travel to the ocean, live in salt water, then travel up to 900 miles back to the place they were born to spawn - that is, lay eggs and produce the next generation. How do they do it? Why are they endangered? What are we doing to save them?
The guest scientists for "Salmon" are:
- Brenda Beckley, Aquatic Education Supervisor, Idaho Department of Fish and Game
- Jeff Heindel, Fish Hatcheries Supervisor, Idaho Department of Fish and Game
