A popular scientific account of the ecology and biology of Atlantic salmon. "This book has been written for all those with an interest in Atlantic salmon by two biologists who have studied the species for more than 20 years. Salmon have been studied by anglers, fishermen and scientists alike for much longer than this, but new issues of interest and importance arise all the time. Recently, the role that genes play in setting the patterns of life that bring salmon of particular types to different places, at special times and in greater or lesser numbers has been particularly topical. ...[this book is] written in a straightforward style, with the sportsman and naturalist firmly in mind". Chapters include: Life in streams and rivers; Leaving for the sea; The lives of adult salmon; The return home; Patterns of return; The final run; Spawning; The genetics of salmon; The structure of populations; Why populations matter; Managing salmon populations; Farmed salmon; What now?. An interesting book now available at a superb price.
