Salmon

Salmon

Salmon live in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the great
lakes, and parts of the Russian Far East. Typically, salmon
are anadromous: they are born in fresh water, migrate to the
ocean, then return to fresh water to reproduce.   It is thought
that most Salmon return to the river of their birth to spawn.
Although most Salmon is commercially fished or farmed,
they are also a popular sport fish. The flesh of the salmon
is usually a pinkish-red color, mostly due to its diet of krill
and other shellfish.   Grilled or Pan seared, Salmon is easy to
cook and has excellent flavor.
