  • Atlantic Salmon are iteroparous, which means they can spawn more than once. Some adults will migrate back to the ocean after spawning (these fish are called kelt, or black salmon) to regain their strength and fat stores before returning for a second or even third time to spawn. Fish species that spawn only once and then die are referred to as semelparous.
