The picture illustrates the different life stages of a salmon.
Overall, it can be observed that there are eight phases in the life cycle of a salmon, beginning with laying fertilized eggs by mature salmons in the river and ending with producing its own sets of fingerlings in the same river.
To begin with, mature salmons will produce fertilized eggs in the river and then the incubation period starts, which nurtures and helps the eggs to hatch. Next, the fertilized eggs will hatch into a freshwater hearing. These hearings will proceed to an estuary where they can mingle with other hearings.
In the subsequent stage, estuary hearings will then journey to a rearing area where they will join other hearings to develop into medium sized salmons. Afterwards, they will travel together towards the ocean to become fully grown salmons. Finally, the salmons will then proceed to the same river to produce fertilized eggs for the survival of its species.
