A major review of the current status of Atlantic Salmon. It considers the effect of factors such as pollution, acid rain, hydro-electric power and afforestation on the species, as well as its life history and migration.
From reviews of the hardback edition:- ...No matter how experienced a salmon man the reader is, I cannot believe he will study this extremely informative book without learning a great deal and gaining much enjoyment from doing so...The biology and life of the salmon ...are all dealt with in a most interesting manner ...Highly recommended. A book not to be read just once, but often to be consulted.; This book is dedicated to Salar the Salmon and what a tribute it is to this unique fish. Supporters of the Trust would be wise to purchase this book and to keep it on the shelf for future reference. - Atlantic Salmon Trust Progress Report
