boring salmon stuff.
this is something about salmon. its gonna be kinda boring, but, but, but, read it anyway.
so first the salmon are born. they come out of eggs. they are usually reddish pinkish.
See? Salmon eggs! Oh and here is a link 4 a real salmon egg pic! http://www.seymoursalmon.com/images/lifecycle/eggs.jpg
And thats a good picture.
Anyway, then they hatch into alevin. I know, wierd name. But thats what its called. The alevin have a yolk sack attached to them, and (its really wierd.) the yolk sack stays for a few weeks. While the yolk sack is still not absorbed, the salmon stay in the gravel. When its gone, the alevin come out and they are fry now.and here is a pic of alevin!
