Salmon   

1     Salmon are amazing! During the breeding season from late spring to summer, they swim against the current, traveling upstream to where they were hatched several years ago. The journey is full of danger. As salmon zigzag their way upriver, they need to be mindful of hungry predators like grizzly bears. A wrong move means the end of their lives!
 
2     Salmon are closely related to trout, char, grayling, and whitefish. They prefer living in colder regions of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Of the seven different species of salmon, there is only one that lives in the Atlantic Ocean, the Atlantic salmon. The other six salmon species all live in the Pacific Ocean. Though they are all known as Pacific salmon, each of them has its own name. These are the six species of Pacific salmon:
 
3     the king (or spring or chinook) salmon
 
4     the sockeye (or red) salmon
