This completely revised and updated edition of The Behavior and Ecology of Pacific Salmon and Trout covers all aspects of the life cycle of these remarkable fish in the Pacific: homing migration from the open ocean through coastal waters and up rivers to their breeding grounds, courtship and reproduction, the lives of juvenile salmon and trout in rivers and lakes, migration to the sea, the structure of fish populations, and the importance of fish carcasses to the ecosystem. It also includes information on salmon and trout transplanted outside their ranges. Thomas Quinn provides the most current science available as well as perspectives on the past, present, and future of Pacific salmon and trout.
