Synopses & Reviews
Salmon, Trout & Charr of the World is a valuable resource for both naturalists and anglers, providing an in-depth study of these mysterious fish.Written in a clear and concise style by a non-scientist for other non-scientists, this is a fascinating study of the origins, evolution, migratory instincts, diet, territories, breeding patterns and management of these fish. The wider issues of the commercial fishing industry, over-fishing, and conservation measures are also covered. Individual chapters focus on the Atlantic and Pacific salmon, brown trout, rainbow trout, Arctic charr, brook charr, and others.
An encyclopedic study which leaves no gaps, is of great interst, and will come to be an essential book of reference. --Country Illustrated
