Pink salmon (Yakut. Кыhыл балык) is a species of anadromous fish from the Salmonidae family. It is the smallest and most common member of the Pacific salmon genus (Oncorhynchus). Its habitat is the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic. During the spawning season, humpback salmon moves into rivers both on the North American mainland and in Russian Siberia, but it does not go far against the current.
Chum salmon (Yakut. Кэтэ) is a member of Pacific salmon genus and is the most popular and common species of red fish. This fish can be 102 cm long and weight 15 kilograms. Its caviar is the largest and has a beautiful orange-red colour.
Chum salmon has a very large habitat range compared to other members of the salmon family. It lives in a basin of the Arctic Ocean.
Sockeye salmon is especially common in the Pacific Ocean and is not very famous in Russia, as it is usually caught off Asian coasts or off the coast of Alaska. Sockeye salmon is distinguished by the presence of a large number of gill rakers, as well as a bright red colour of meat compared to the meat of other salmon fish, as it has a soft pink hue.
The main habitat of this fish is the Pacific Ocean, but it spawns in the waters of the North American continent and Asia. Coho salmon has a silver scale of bright hue, so it is also called silver salmon.
