Quinn (aquatic and fishery science, U. of Washington) examines the lives of salmon, steelhead and cut-throat trout, and how these lives affect those of the humans along their trek from spawning grounds to open sea and back. Through text, photographs and graphics he describes their various configurations and names, their migration patterns (homing and straying), mating systems, incubation, their emergence as alevin and their movement as fry and juveniles to the oceans, their life in the sea, and their ecology as the dead. Finally, Quinn describes populations, sizes, and species in terms of their impact on the diversity of the Pacific environment. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
