About this book

Looks at the roots and evolution of the salmon crisis in the Pacific Northwest and describes the multitude of factors over the past century and a half that have led to the salmon's decline, examining in depth the abject failure of restoration efforts that have focused almost exclusively on hatcheries to return salmon stocks to healthy levels without addressing the underlying causes of the decline.

Contents

A rough trip through evolutionary time; humans enter the Pacific Northwest; the rise of the salmon-based economies; the first salmon management; conflicting economies; birth and growth of the salmon canning industry; Indian fishermen displaced; controlling the harvest; the fishery moves to the ocean; hatcheries in the United States; fish culture moves west; acclimatization - playing God with ecosystems; the political tool; science and salmon management; different roads to restoration; the road to extinction; building a new salmon culture.
