There’s a lot of fish in the sea…

…or atleast, in the river. A quarter of a million red salmon (sockeye) passed the sonar station on the Kenai River Tuesday. I mean they passed the sonar station…ON TUESDAY! In one day! That’s a lot of fish during one 24-hour period.http://ow.ly/n4qlT 

That’s, like, ten thousand per hour. Which is about 170 per minute. Or 3 fish every second.

The downside is the famous, but vanishing,  Kenai River kings; this year fewer than 600 (total) have returned.
