Salmon

Salmon belong to a group of fish that divide their time between fresh water (river and lake) and salt water (ocean). There are Pacific Salmon (which live in the northern Pacific Ocean , the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean ) and Atlantic Salmon (which live in the northern Atlantic Ocean ). There is only one species of Atlantic salmon and eight of Pacific Salmon, however, the Atlantic and Pacific Salmon look more or less alike.
