Did You Know
In 2010, the Adams River salmon run saw an estimated 3.8 million sockeye return to the site of their birth to spawn and die. While salmon return to Adams River every year, the migration that occurs every fourth year (the dominant year of the cycle) dwarfs the others. As 2014 is the next dominant year in the cycle, it is expected that at least 1.5 million salmon will spawn in the river this fall. Data Source: Fisheries and Oceans Canada
