The salmon cycle of descent and re- turn is one of the most inspiring stories found in nature, whether you approach it as pure science or as a spiritual metaphor. Very simply, salmon fry are born in fresh water and are carried downriver to the sea where they grow to maturity. If they’re not eaten by orca whales or caught by fishermen, they make their way back upriver to the same place they were hatched. Just as their bodies grew when they first floated downstream, their bodies transform again as they work their way upstream to spawn, laying eggs that will become the next generation. Then they die. Their bodies rot, and what isn’t picked over by ravens and eagles is composted into the soil, turning it into fertile ground.
