Cutting Redds and Laying Eggs

It's the most wonderful time of the year... (apart from Christmas!!)...IT'S SPAWNING TIME for our Atlantic salmon. Here is some awesome footage from Grant Morrison's underwater camera on the River Spey. If you are interested in the life cycle of the salmon or want to know more info the Salmon & Trout Conservation U or Atlantic Salmon Trus share great facts about these wonderful courageous creatures. Below are a couple of links which show the salmon's primary stages in the river, feeding in the sea and returning back to the river to their spawning grounds.
