Review

The dramatic decline in salmon stocks and runs on both our coasts is now
so severe, of such commercial and economic importance, and in some cases
so unexpected, that it has become an issue of political and national
significance. Salmon of the Pacific is one of several recently published
books focusing on this natural resource. It covers the types of Pacific
salmon, their life cycles and ecology, Native and commercial fishing
practices, angling, and resource management. Gorgeous color plates,
assembled from many sources, highlight this well-produced book.
