We Like Springs

  • This video was taken in late January in Juneau.
  • Studies of rearing Dolly Varden and coho salmon have shown that they often seek out spring areas in streams during the winter.
  • In certain winters many Alaskan streams become so ice bound that spring areas can be crucial to the overwinter survival of young fish.
  • Of interest is juvenile coho and juvenile Dolly Varden are very territorial during the other seasons.
  • This territoriality breaks down in winter and you can usually find them grouped together.
  • How is this beneficial to them?
