In the last few lessons, we learned about the stages of development of a salmon from egg to fry to parr to smolt in the river. In this lesson you can continue following Bradán, our Irish Salmon fishy friend, at the final stages of her life cycle, as she travels to sea and then returns her spawing bed.

Click on the video below to find out more information about the salmon at sea, where pupils will learn how Bradán (a salmon fish) has survived all the obstacles that nature and people present as she makes her way into the sea and then returns to the spawning bed. You can also download this video to watch later, by following the links below. A powerpoint presentation of the complete video is also available for download below.
