- The sockeye is named suk-kegh by the native Pacific Coast Salish people, meaning “red fish.”
- Sockeye are anadromous; born in fresh water, they migrate out to the sea, returning to fresh water as adults, to spawn.
- It is easy to spot breeding-age males. They develop bright red coloring with a greenish head, a humped back and hooked jaws.
- Preserving and restoring sockeye habitat will ensure their abundance in the future.
