Small Fry

“Coho salmon fry peer out of their tank at an elementary school,” writes Your Shot member Eiko Jones, who submitted this photo from British Columbia, Canada. “In conjunction with the Department of Fisheries, the school raises a tankful of salmon each year”—coho salmon can grow to be up to two feet long—“and then releases them into a local stream to teach kids about watershed issues and salmon biology.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more.
