Oncorhynchus kisutch, commonly known as coho salmon, are primarily found in coastal waters. Coho salmon do not range widely in the open ocean like that of many other salmon species. Oncorhynchus kisutch are also found in fresh water, during their first year and later while spawning. They are found in fresh streams of the North Pacific, ranging from Baja, California to Alaska (Wheeley, 1985).
