Chum salmon spawning in October. The female digs her nest (redd) and her big male mate fertilizes her eggs while another male zips in and squirts his milt too!

Eagle River~Liquid Jewel of the Sunshine Coast
Immerse yourself in an inspirational four season journey through the Eagle River watershed from alpine to ocean. Unique “amphibiography” reveals exotic wonders above and below the water’s surface in this non-typical nature documentary. With no commentary each viewer is given the opportunity to respond primally, without the 'expert' interpreter, and the soundtrack arises organically, being mentored by the sounds of nature.
