ARTIFICIAL PROPAGATION OF THE SALMONS OF THE PACIFIC COAST 

ARTIFICIAL PROPAGATION OF THE SALMONS OF THE PACIFIC COAST –   There are five species of salmon on the Pacific coast which belong to the genus Oncorhynchus, namely, the chinook or quinnat salmon (Oncorhynchus tschaicytscha), the red or blueback salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), the humpback salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha), the silver salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), and the dog salmon (Oncorhynchus Iceta).
