Did you know?
A question was in the head of scientists: is the chinook a salmon from farms that came back in nature?

The similarities statistics analysis have demonstrated that the DNA of two populations of fishes create to separate and dissimilar groups. It means that the chinook is not a wild evolution of farming salmons but really a species.
