Salmon

Describe Me

Salmon are silver fish and have large round scales. Some types of salmon are bright red in colour! Salmon can grow up to 150cm. Is that taller than you?

Fish Food

Salmon eat small fish including sprats, hoki and pilchards.

Find Me

Salmon can be found all over the world, often in cold waters. In the middle of the year, salmon leave the sea and move to the top of rivers to have their spawn, which will grow into adult salmon. The salmon sometimes need to jump over rocks on their way, and can jump to heights of up to 3.7m!

Dinner Time

We eat salmon in many forms, including from tins, smoked slices and fillets. Salmon is healthy for your heart because it is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. 

Fishy Fact!

Did you know that there are lots of different types of salmon with strange names, including: chum, coho, pink, chinook and sockeye!
