About this book

From the publishers announcement:

Artist Rod Sutterby is a keen angler and naturalist. In stunning oils and watercolours, he paints salmon exactly as he sees them, with astonishing accuracy and beauty, recording every subtle hue, every movement, in some cases every scale! In this sumptuous book, he teams up with Dr Malcolm Greenhalgh, Britain's leading scientific expert on the natural history of salmon and seatrout.
Greenhalgh provides, in layman's terms, an authoritative resume the salmon's extraordinary life-cycle, covering a journey of thousands of miles from gravel-bedded headwaters to the remote sea-coasts of Greenland. His up-to-the-minute appraisal of the plight of the Atlantic salmon includes the very latest fascinating scientific research, appealing to fisherman and naturalist alike.
Despite many challenges to its future, the salmon fights on, assisted by some magnificent and enterprising conservation projects, outlined by the author, which are currently being
undertaken in many parts of Europe and North America.
