Sockeye salmon swim up to 4,000 miles into the ocean and then, years later, navigate back to their upstream home rivers to spawn by sensing the rivers' unique magnetic signature. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

Animal migrations are among the most amazing things in nature, and a mistery for humans... Among them, the salmon migrations. We are just beginning to unveil nature´s secrets. Thanks, shared and noted.
