Atlantic salmon enhancement in Lake Champlain

Landlocked salmon live in the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, and their tributaries. These fish mimic the behavior of sea-run salmon -- hatched in rivers and streams, they migrate to the large lakes where they grow to maturity before returning to their natal waterways to spawn.
