All about Pacific Salmon in the Kuskokwim


This module will focus on the five of seven species of Pacific salmon that spawn in Alaska, and can be found in the Kuskokwim River.  We will learn a little bit about salmon anatomy first, so that you’ll be familiar with the terms as we go. Then we'll cover the basics of the salmon life cycle, and then go into some specifics about each species.  Click on the first course below to get started.
