For salmon, being bigger isn’t always better. Being a little smaller -- at least intermediate size -- is more advantageous for maximum spawning in riverbeds, a University of Wyoming researcher recently discovered.
While bigger salmon can carry more eggs and move larger sediment than smaller salmon, the larger fish also take up more space in a riverbed when they build their spawning nests, or redds, in stream gravel. Hence, bigger salmon can fit fewer redds into a particular riverbed area than their intermediate-sized counterparts, which can maximize the number of eggs they can place in a riverbed.
