Taken 4 Oct 2010, in Issaquah, WA The picture's top most fish was actually tagged with two tags from last year's cycle of life when it was a young salmon. Once the first redd is finished, the male and female align themselves next to one another for the actual spawning ritual. Their bodies quivering next to one another, the female releases her eggs at the same time that the male releases milt. Fertilization occurs in the water as the eggs drift down into the gravel.
