MIGHTY Ef­fort

Landscape (UK) - - Land Scape -

For the wild At­lantic sal­mon, Oc­to­ber marks the start of the most ar­du­ous jour­ney of its life. Af­ter ma­tur­ing at sea, adult fish re­turn to the river in which they were born, us­ing their sense of smell to hone in on what is of­ten the ex­act gravel bank from which they hatched. As they swim, they must force their way up­stream, leap­ing bar­ri­ers and ne­go­ti­at­ing rapids. This mag­nif­i­cent sight can be wit­nessed at rivers in Scot­land, and Wales, and in York­shire and Devon in Eng­land.
