SALMON
Salmon is a species of fish which is found both in fresh water (rivers) and
saline water (seas), depending on the stage of its development.

They have a peculiar life cycle. The fish lay their eggs near the mouth of rivers, where the eggs hatch,
develop into fries and start their journey toward the sea. They grow into adult salmon in the sea, and
then go back to the rivers to reproduce, where most of them die after laying their eggs.

The varieties of this fish are usually identified based on the ocean where they are located. The
scientific name of the salmon family is Oncorhynchus in the Pacific, while they belong to the
Salmogenus in the Atlantic. There is only one type of Atlantic salmon, and five kinds of Pacific salmon
namely, chinook (or king), sockeye (or red), coho (or silver), pink, and chum. Another popular variety
is wild Alaskan salmon.

The flesh of the salmon is usually pink but can range between shades of red to orange.
