The great salmon run, salmon crossing the road [VIDEO]

The great salmon run is the time when salmon, which have migrated from the ocean, swim back up stream to the upper reaches of rivers where they spawn on gravel beds.The Salmon homing instinct to follow the river up stream is so strong that they will swim through against any current, even is that means they need to cross a road.

Salmon spend a small part of their early life in rivers, and then head out to sea where they live most of their adult lives. When they have matured, they return back to the rivers where they were born to spawn. After spawning, all salmon die, and the salmon life cycle starts over again.
