You asked your mom for her salmon to test in BioScio lab. So was your mom’s salmon really salmon? For this experiment, we knew we would be testing whether mom’s salmon was really salmon, or whether it was trout that looks like salmon.

This is to determine whether mom’s salmon more closely resembles the trout or the known salmon, which will give us our ultimate answer.
