During the summer and autumn months of Alaska, tourists, locals, and bears alike are all drawn to the annual occurrence of sockeye salmon spawning. Known locally as “reds,” millions of bright red salmon travel from the ocean to Alaskan rivers in order to spawn and die.

Sockeye salmon are Alaska’s most commercially valuable fish species and contribute $296 million to the state’s economy. The New York Times Magazine recently captured their spawning season in a series of photographs, including several underwater shots.
