Salmon Biodiversity Species Profile

A female Salmon can carry more than 4,000 eggs before she finds a suitable spawning location in the headwaters of a river!

Young Salmon develop for 1-4 years before they become ‘smolts’ and migrate out to sea in spring. Adult Salmon feed at Sea from 1-3 years but then return to the native river where they were born to spawn over winter.
