Life History Chinook salmon are anadromous, which means they are born in freshwater streams and travel to the open ocean to grow into adulthood. For the first year or so, the juvenile salmon stays in its freshwater habitat. Then it moves to estuaries and on to the open ocean, which provide a lot of food and nutrients to the developing salmon.
Global farmed salmon production exceeded the world’s total commercial harvest of wild and ranched coho and chinook salmon by the mid-1980s, and it exceeded all commercial harvests of wild salmon by 1996 (Knapp et. al., 2007). Canadian salmon farming takes place primarily in British Columbia and New Brunswick.
Located on the Missouri river, this spot begins its salmon run in mid-to-late June, and early morning (think 6 a.m.) anglers will be rewarded for fishing the rocks alongside the upper face of the dam.

The size of salmon runs changes from year to year.
“Everything Given to Salmon is Returned” exhibit explains in dynamic fashion how every stage of the salmon’s life cycle is entwined with the ecosystem. It also teaches how the public can help maintain a healthy riparian zone (stream bank), which is so important for salmon survival and watershed fitness.
