Info from Licensor: "This video is of a large Sea Lamprey on a 12 pound Chinook (King) Salmon from Lake Ontario in Toronto. The Lamprey’s are an invasive species to the Great Lakes. They usually come off of the fish in the net or on the floor of the boat. This one wasn’t letting go of the fish. The Lamprey was killed and the salmon was let go to swim another day. The salmon are a tough fish and the skin will repair quickly."
