Wildlife Of Kamchatka In Winter

Posted on January 13, 2012 by

About 8 thousand years ago, a powerful eruption caused sinking of the Earth crust in the south of Kamchatka, forming a large lake with a maximum depth of over 300 meters. Years later, the lake became home for the largest red salmon run in the world.

Spawning at Kurile Lake begins in July and lasts till March.

Fish spawn at shallow waters and mountain rivers that fill the lake with water.

    WOW! just awesome! I hope that steel pillbox is anchored securely! It might be too easy for a couple of tons of bear to push it over into the river. Same needs to be said for the camera on photo #1 !!
