The Salmon

£6.99

Product description

A fascinating journey into the extraordinary world of the king of fish: the salmon. This book explores the natural history of this mysterious fish. The author explores the life cycle of the salmon, using his own experiences and stories of salmon fishing and spotting to create an enticing narrative. He also addresses the matter of conservation issues and human management, which in the past has led to fast decreasing populations. History suggests it is the pressure of human development which has narrowed down the survival zone of the salmon, and the author questions whether we can go on altering natural systems and freshwater rivers in order to make space for human populations, and do so in sync with fish needs. The book is in good condition, with only some minor damage done to the top and bottom of the spine of the dust jacket and along the very edges. Internally the pages are clean, the binding strong and the colour photographs are clear. For those interested in marine life.
