The diagram is an illustration of the lifecycle of the salmon fish.
The lifecycle begins with spawning [“产卵”，不及物动词] in the upper river, where the water moves slowly. As soon as the eggs are laid among small stones at the bottom of reeds, the incubation [“孵化”，抽象名词] starts, which takes approximately 5 to 6 months. The fry, whose length ranges from 3 to 8 centimeters [range from xxx to xxx = “范围是”], then swims downstream to the lower river, where the water flow is fast. The lower river is the habitat [“栖息地”] of the fish for 4 years, and the fish grows to 12 to 15 centimeters. This is the ‘smolt’ stage. The next stage of life is in the open sea, where the fish inhabits [“栖息”，及物动词] for 5 years, and the 5 years witness the tremendous [“极大的”，程度形容词] growth to 70 to 76 centimeters, the fish’s maturation [“成熟过程/状态”，抽象名词] [同位语]. After that, the adult fish returns to the birthplace and spawns. At this point, the lifecycle starts again.
Overall, the lifecycle of the salmon fish is quite long, spanning [“跨越（时间/距离）”] [引导伴随状语] almost a decade. [生命循环类流程图：总结生命循环的长短]
