Abstract

Oncorhynchus nerka always spawn in a lake associated with a river or in the outlet river. The young fish use the lakes for rearing. Washington State and the Columbia River are the southern limit of reproducing populations of sockeye salmon. Sockeye salmon are primarily plankton feeders. They thrive at temperatures of 10-15°C. Adults require gravel with adequate water circulation for successful spawning and egg hatching. -from Authors
