When in the ocean, Pacific salmon are chrome bright and look nearly identical to each other in shape and  ...   They change colors, ranging from red to green to brown.. Their mouths and teeth grow larger, especially on the male salmon.. This is called a "kype.. " Males of some species also grow humped backs..

  • Title: Campbell Creek, Anchorage - a creek in progress
    Descriptive info: Little Campbell Creek Display - 61 9' 20" N, 149 52' 38" W.. A Creek in Progress.. Though Little Campbell Creek is small and unassuming, it provides vital rearing habitat for young salmon.. Hanging in the Balance.. As Anchorage has grown, many urban portions of Little Campbell Creek have been ditched and straightened, damaging salmon habitat.. Much of the creek's natural wetlands and vegetation have been replaced by buildings, parking lots, and roads.. These impervious surfaces do not absorb rain and snowmelt; this impacts water quality by allowing stormwater to carry pet waste, sediment, and chemicals directly into the creek.. Side Benefits.. Little Campbell Creek is Campbell Creek's largest tributary, amounting to about 26% of the entire watershed.. It supplies many miles of rearing habitat for young Chinook (king) and coho (silver) salmon, which find refuge here until they are ready to  ...   up litter along the creek and be careful not to leave any of your own.. Scoop the Poopâ keep creeks clean by picking up pet waste along the creek and in your own yard.. Plant native vegetation and do not mow or trim plants along the edges of creeks.. Vegetation provides cover for salmon and protects against high water temperatures, erosion, and pollutants carried by stormwater runoff.. Learn more about the Little Campbell Creek Watershed Plan at.. littlecampbellcreek.. or call Watershed Management Services at 343-8058.. Install a rain garden in your yard to slow down and filter runoff water.. Find out more about the Municipality's rain garden program at.. anchorageraingardens..

These hardened surfaces can have unfortunate impacts on our water quality and salmon.. Altered Landscape.. Urban development has transformed parts of Anchorage's landscape into roofs, streets, and other hardened surfaces, impacting water quality and quantity.. Rain and snowmelt run off these hardened surfaces rather than soaking into the ground.. Stormwater flows rapidly into storm drains and then into our creeks where it can result in flash flooding.. This runoff also carries harmful pollutants into creeks.. Curiously, hardened surfaces can also reduce the amount of water in our creeks.. Paved surfaces prevent water from soaking into the soil and  ...   that can smother salmon eggs.. Lower water levels in summer may result in higher water temperatures that are harmful to young salmon.. Polluted water affects the health of everything that lives in the creek, including salmon..
