Colors of the Underwater Rainbow
The fish are jumping this summertime in Katmai National Park and our new Underwater Live Bear & Salmon Cam gives you every angle of action.
Salmon “live in the northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and are anadromous, which means most types of salmon are born in fresh water, migrate to the sea, and return to freshwater to reproduce, or ‘spawn.’ Salmon appearance varies greatly from species to species. Species like chum salmon are silvery-blue in color while some have black spots on their sides, like the Atlantic salmon. Still others, like the cherry salmon, have bright red stripes. Most of these species maintain one color when living in fresh water, then change color when they are in salt water,” (Defenders).
