Salmon go through more stages, the first being Alevins, whilst they still have part of the egg yolk to live on, then Fry, then around a year as Parr, when they live in the river.
Smolts are the stage as they prepare to leave for the sea.
There will be more fish not classed as fry, Sharks for instance.
