Acclimation

That is a thought, Humpty. I figured there had to be some sort of acclimation process, due to the biological shift from pumping out salt, to retaining it, but didn't have a clue if it hindered the start of the migration up river. ( assuming they are not being chased by F%$#&^ seals or sea lions )

I knew that once they started moving, they can cover some serious distance, but 50+ miles average per day is crazy! I would have guessed 30 miles being on the very very top end. However "guess" is the operative word there.
