Caption: Chinook salmon. Chinook or king salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) leaping out of a river. This is the largest Pacific salmon, found from southern California to Point Hope, Alaska. It spends most of its adult life at sea, returning to spawn (reproduce) in the river in which it was born. The young live in the gravel on the river bottom for 2-3 weeks, after which time they become free swimming and move to the coast. Adult chinooks remain at sea for between two and five years.
