Description

When salmon are ready to spawn, they struggle upstream to their birthplace. Their remarkable journey is just one of the twelve topics discussed in this clearly written look at the two main kinds of salmon --- Pacific salmon and Atlantic salmon. Kids can find out about where salmon live, their life cycle, their place in the food chain and much more. The easy-to-read text and accurate, detailed illustrations of this title in the Kids Can Press Wildlife Series meet the research needs of young children and satisfy their curiosity about these important fish.
