About this book

This is the first book to apply a common, newly caliberated yardstick to measure, across this broad ecosystem, the state of the Pacific salmon, which have suffered precipitous declines in abundance and diversity on recent decades.

"Salmon are the world's most complex fishes, and no other swimming creatures have so affected peoples' view of themselves and their place in the world. This excellent Atlas is the most illuminating overview ever conceived about these miraculous creatures and their human and biological context" - Carl Safina, author of Song for the Blue Ocean.

"This atlas is no less than a guide to salmon conservation from California to Japan. The maps are works of art and their message is urgent: salmon populations need help everywhere". - Peter B. Moyle, author of Inland Fishes of California.

Such a bold and holistic approach has been needed for a long time." - Jim Lichatowich, author of Salmon without Rivers"
