Salmon Swimming Sound for Those About to Slosh

You’re famil­iar with the plight of the salmon: theirs is a life spent swim­ming upstream, in both fresh and salt water, plagued all the way by bears and fishermen’s nets. The Pacific salmon never repeats this cycle. It makes the round trip to the stream where it hatched, spawns the next gen­er­a­tion and dies within a few days. If that weren’t exis­ten­tial enough, con­sider that because of habit­ual over-harvesting, dam build­ing on migra­tory rivers and com­pe­ti­tion with hatch­ery fish, some of the five Pacific salmon species are cur­rently endangered.
