Scuba With Salmon: Little Lives, Big Lessons


BBC Travel sent me and photographer Josh Humbert scuba-diving with the world's most concentrated sockeye-salmon run.
Annoyed by the party crasher at their mating game, at least 100 salmon shot off into the jade water. But one bold sockeye swam within arm’s reach, displaying the hooked nose and needle-sharp teeth that spawning males develop to fight over the ladies. He stretched only 75cm long, but I gave way so I wouldn’t add any stress to his last days. Little Big Man here had survived orcas, bears and eagles along his journey. He deserved to lay his bones down in the place of his birth.
