Big Herring Dinner

The schools of big herring just keep hanging around in Georgia Strait. In mid September these mature cohos and many of the immature chinooks are about the same size. ( Those are mature cohos on the left, the tiny eggs indicate that this chinook won't spawn for another year. ) The cohos will be on there way soon, but the chinooks will be here growing all winter, and spring, and summer. 
 These herring are likely also the reason that humpback whales have been in Georgia Strait so much more in recent years.
