Oh my cod! Have you ever seen herring spawn? (If you can think of a better fish pun let minnow).
It is an insanely cool experience. The nearshore waters are churning with thousands of fish laying eggs. The water turns turquoise and all critters, from eagles to wolves to crabs, come to feast. It’s also an important event for coastal First Nations communities, as the eggs that are laid on kelp are harvested and consumed.
I wrote a little article about it in attempt to convey some recent scientific research in a more engaging way! Check it out.
