'Invader' pink salmon seen in UK waters for first time

A Scottish fishery board says it has the first footage of Pacific pink salmon in a UK river.

Underwater cameras filmed the pair of salmon spawning in the River Ness near Inverness.

Chris Conway, of Ness Salmon Fishery Board, has said the situation will be monitored: "While the risks are unknown in terms of their interaction with Atlantic salmon and other Scottish fish, they are unlikely to have a positive impact."

Pacific pink salmon are usually found in Canada and Alaska, and have been seen in Norway.
