What is salmon spawning?
The salmon run is the time when salmon, which have migrated from the ocean, swim to the upper reaches of rivers where they spawn on gravel beds. After spawning, all Pacific salmon and most Atlantic salmon die, and the salmon life cycle starts over again.

This miraculous cycle is illustrated on graphics, provided by the Federal Department of Fisheries under a kiosk owned by The Enchanted Forest.
