These four Salish designed salmon represent mature male and female salmon that are born in local rivers, make their way to the sea as fingerlings, then after four years return to the waters of their birth to spawn, die, and repeat the great cycle of life once again The female salmon arch downward to symbolize the laying of eggs and the male salmon arch upward representing the moment of fertilization.
