Describe what changes occur in the body of a salmon as it leaves fresh water and migrates to the ocean?

The changes occurring to salmons leaving freshwater and migrate to saltwater are called smoltification or parr-smolt transformation:
Smoltification is a complex process, and events are coordinated such that fish are ready to enter saltwater at the appropriate time.
The salmons undergo a series of morphological, physiological, and behavioral changes.
For details see chapter "Smoltification":
