The great leap!

An amazing natural spectacle is played out along the River Tyne, Northumberland where thousands of salmon have migrated from as far afield as Greenland and Norway to return to their spawning grounds on the upper reaches of the North and South River Tyne, high in the North Pennines. The annual spectacle of salmon battling upstream has been captured in these stunning photographs.

Hi, Slavenka! Interesting post. The government here in Melbourne has just spent a huge amount rebuilding a weir on the Yarra and putting in a fish race so some sort of fish can swim upstream for the first time in decades (or even a hundred years or more, I'm not sure). You've made me interested to go online and see what sort of fish would swim upstream here in Australia.
