Do both male and female salmon die during spawning?

    Yes, they both eventually die.  This does not occur until the couple has created several redds (nests) and have exhausted their energy.  The males typically die shortly after the spawning session, but the females may guard their nests for a week or two. The females will continue to get weaker until they eventually die and get washed downstream.
