More information about salmon and iron fertilization

The largest run of Pink salmon occurs 12-20 months after the fertilization of iron sulphate in the ocean. The iron fertilizer clearly triggered a very large plankton bloom visible from space.

[Fish and Wildlife Service] – Pink salmon mature at 2 years; spawn August – September over coarse gravel and sand, in riffles with moderate to fast currents.
