Pink Salmon is endemic to the Pacific and Arctic oceans, Bering and Okhotsk seas, the Sea of Japan, and the rivers that flow into all these waters. It lives from Alaska south to the Sacramento River in California, throughout the Aleutian Islands, and northeast into the MacKenzie River, NWT in Canada. This small salmon has been introduced to Newfoundland and to the western coast of Lake Superior and is maintaining populations in all these locations. Pink salmon have been sporadic reports of pink salmon in Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Quebec. Pink has spread through Lake Superior and is now spawning in some tributaries of Lake Huron.
