Set B7 - Freshwater Fish - card information

31. Salmon
(Salmo salar)

31. Salmon

The Salmon may be found in all unpolluted rivers of the British Isles, provided they are connected with the sea. It is silvery, with a dark back and many small black spots on the sides above the lateral line; it has a soft dorsal fin and a small adipose fin near the tail. The Salmon is born in rivers and usually spends the first two years of its life there; then it descends to the sea where it grows large feeding on fish, returning later to the river to spawn. The largest angled* weighed 64 lbs.
*up to 1958.
