Leaping salmon sculpture

Leaping salmon sculpture
On the grounds of the fish hatchery at Bonneville Dam, on the Oregon side of the Columbia River, USA. There's no little irony here because it's the dams that trashed the salmon runs!

Good sculpture. I think that in Scotland they have discovered farmed salmon are much more prone to disease.

The wild fish stocks are certainly at risk from diseases carried by the farmed fish. In much the same way, wild bighorn sheep herds have often been decimated by diseases from domestic sheep.
