It may look like a waste but it is really a happy ending ...to know that they have spawned and procreated their species as many of them don't make it back to their place of origin to do this. This years Sockeye salmon return was many times larger than recent years which is due partially to assistance from local hatcheries. Many other species are not doing so well...

We can only hope the radiation in Japan can be contained and not a threat to our oceans lookchile.
Thanks all for comment.

Its funny you should say that Nancy as I do have a shot of a piece of driftwood behind my sisters office which resembles a fish but I have not uploaded it here. You must have psychic powers:)

I think that they may be Coho because of the teeth and hooked nose. Sockeye are manly plankton feeders so don't need the teeth that the fish eating Coho do!

I didnt identify the ones in the picture as sockeyes....I think they are chums or pinks actually...just saying we had a great sockeye run this year.
Thanks for comment though bro:)
