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?
