Atlantic salmon

Atlantic salmon is a fish species of the Salmonidae family found in the northern Atlantic Ocean and in rivers that flow into the Atlantic.

The Atlantic salmon follows an "anadromous" fish migration pattern.

Escape from commercial salmon farms in the northern Pacific have introduced the Atlantic salmon into the range of the Pacific species.
