Salmon eggs. Close-up of eggs of the pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha). The small black dots visible in some of the eggs are the eyes of the young fish inside. These eggs are around two months old. The pink salmon is the smallest of the salmon, reaching around 50 centimetres in length and rarely exceeding 4 kilograms in weight. The females lay up to 2000 eggs. The pink salmon is found in the northern Pacific Ocean, and travels up rivers to spawn. Photographed at Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery, British Columbia, Canada.
