Throughout the week, we learned many things about salmon. We learned how farmed salmon are hatched at hatcheries and later on thrown in the water where the fish live and also the situation in Sweden .At the symposium several speakers represented salmon as the center of their presentations.
One thing in particular that I learned was the carcasses of salmon and their contribution to the ecosystem. Ms. Nagasaki, the head researcher of a forest ecology section, forest research institute and the Hokkaido organization. Bears and other animals who feed on the fish bring the afters of the salmon to the ground where they are decomposed to be being part of the land. It is important for such carcasses because salmon give off so much nutrients that can be deposed to the land below. Before I did not think at all that such organisms that are of a former living thing would still be able to contribute to the ecosystem
