Simply stunning, this fabulous rendition of the eternal Salmon spawning runs along the westcoast of Canada and the nothern U.S. during the summer full moon. This, the largest salmon spawning run in the world has occured every year since the dawn of time and has traditionally been the most important food source for the coastal Nu-chah-nulth people.
