Dead salmon

It seems that the fall Toronto salmon run has started. This is a dead salmon in the Don river. I saw several of them today (October 1st, 2005), and I also saw several of them last week (September 24th, 2005). Unfortunately, so far, I have only seen dead ones. I hope to be able to see a few jumping ones as well. The pictures probably won't be as sharp, but it would be a pleasure to see the spectacle.

Unforunately, not all of the little dams on the river have been prepared for the salmon, so their chances of spawning successfully are not too good. Nevertheless, it is fascinating to see that the Don river, probably the most urbanized river in Canada, still sees salmon going upstream to spawn. Posted by Picasa
