Atlantic Salmon eggs

Atlantic salmon eggs near hatching. By March, and the onset of Spring, Atlantic salmon eggs are well developed. The head, eyes, heart, fins, vertebrae and blood vessels can be seen. Hatching produces a "sac fry" which remains in the gravel stream substrate until the nutrient sac is depleted. Once this occurs, the fry emerge form the gravel to look for food in the form of insect larvae.
