Spawning Chinook Salmon Video.

The salmon fishing season in Canterbury was one of the worst on record. However there were a few that managed to return to the spawning grounds.
The video captures a pair of chinook salmon in the act of spawning and clearly shows the eggs being deposited by the Hen and being fertilized by the Jack.

That's a great video! Truly inspiring me to take my GoPro out to a stream and do a bit of filming in the coming weeks. I hope to see more videos like this from you. Great job!
