So when my son wanted his salmon cycle project immortalized in bytes I jumped into action. Below are his comments:
Salmon Life Cycle
A baby salmon (called an alevin) starts its life in fresh water rivers, after a little while they're called frys. (The Columbia River for example). Then it takes a long hard journey to the ocean where it is called a smolt. And somehow it adapts to salt water. It spends its ocean years maturing and growing.
