About this book

British Columbia's Skeena River is one of the great salmon rivers of the North Pacific. The river and its fish have supported indigenous peoples for thousands of years. More recently, the Skeena has earned world renown for its recreational fishery and magnificent wilderness setting. Yet, over the last century, fish populations have declined from overfishing, habitat alteration and, to an unknown degree, climate change. Development of mining as well as oil and gas resources may also pose threats to fish populations.

This book presents the first thorough review of the salmon stocks and freshwater species of the Skeena River. The chapters summarize the river's environment, fish and fisheries as well as examining the physical geography, development history, indigenous use and major salmon stocks of each of the watershed's sub-basins.

Media reviews
Allen Gottesfeld and Ken Rabnett obviously care about the Skeena and its salmon, and that caring is based on extensive knowledge of the river and its fish - knowledge that they share in this book. To me this book is an important first step in the process of healing and strengthening the relationship between salmon, people, and place. -Jim Lichatowich author of Salmon Without Rivers
