In order to accurately distinguish between Salmonidae species we altered the position of the camera back to the original position (side view) and added LED lights to help with turbidity issues. See if you can accurately identify how many fish and which species there are in this video! Note the lamprey attached to a Chinook Salmon as it swims through the fishway
