The Adventurous Salmon

Meet the latest childrens’ book hero – the Adventurous Salmon!

Follow the epic 1,900 mile journey of a brave Atlantic salmon, from Cumbria’s tiny becks to the sea and back again. Along the way you’ll meet lots of other friendly faces that live in our rivers, lakes and oceans.

The Adventurous Salmon introduces young readers to some of Cumbria’s native species and sparks discussion about their habitats and conservation.
