"This is a complete and authoritative survey of the status of one of the world's most extraordinary - and delicious - fish and the means which can be taken to preserve it both as a resource and as a source of food and sport. Mr. Netboy has travelled to almost every country where salmon are found, and is familiar with the latest research and developments..". The book's three parts deal with the life of the salmon, the Atlantic salmon and the Pacfic salmon, respectively. The biology of the salmon, the fisheries which prey on it and its ecology are dealt with in detail, as are the various remedies which might be taken to rescue the species. A valuable insight into the position of the salmon at the close of the 1970's.
