Common name: Atlantic Salmon,
ID: Narrow tongue. 4 to 6 teeth. Dark pectoral fins. Forked tail. Two dorsal fins, 1 adipose fin.
Life Cycle: Spawn in their parent streams. The female digs a next near a pool and lays eggs, covering them, during fall. When the eggs hatch in April they stay under gravel until May or June, and then stay in the area for 1 or 2 years until they are big enough to go to the lake. They later return to spawn once they are bigger. Some Atlantic Salmon live to spawn more than once.
Prey: Crustaceans, smelt, alewives, any other small fish meal.
Predators: Eels, Northern Pike, Birds, Trout.
Where to find them: In spring, they will be in surface warm waters. In summer, they retreat to deeper cooler waters until they move to spawning grounds in the fall.
