The Salmon's Lifecycle, its Habitat, Threats and Concerns

Watch our Celebrated Interactive Movie

Atlantic salmon are anadromous, migratory fish which means they spend part of their life in the ocean but they breed and lay their eggs in freshwater. At each stage of the life cycle of the salmon distinct changes take place. In fact it was not until the first part of the 19th century that it was proven that the adult Atlantic salmon was the same species as the striped parr found in the rivers. Watch our interactive movie which tells the story of this journey.
