Just in time for gift giving! A revised and updated second edition by well known fisheries expert Thomas Quinn of the University of Washington.
The new book combines in-depth scientific information with over 100 color photographs and original artwork to describe the fish species critical to the Pacific Rim.
It covers life cycles, homing migration from the ocean to breeding grounds, courtship and reproduction, lives of juvenile fish in rivers and lakes and migrations to the sea, the structure of fish populations, the importance of fish carcasses to the ecosystem and much more.
“With accessible prose and measured optimism, Dr. Quinn deftly explains the complex ecology of Pacific salmon and illuminates the path to recovery of these iconic fish.”
