    This book is destined to become a classic library reference and will probably also adorn the personal shelves of most salmon researchers and many others besides. -- John Armstrong * Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology * This is a timely, up-to-date synthesis of our knowledge of the life histories of the seven species of Pacific Brand: University of British Columbia.   The five species of Pacific salmon and the two anadromous trout have evolved a rich array of life histories and local and regional distributions, which are summarized in Appendix B. Native Americans sometimes called the salmon "lightning following one another," a name that evokes an image of the large silver fish flashing through swift : Island Press.

    Salmon return to their natal streams to spawn, a trait that segregates populations and leads to a variety of local adaptations, including the timing of spawning runs, growth rates, and other life-history features (e.g., Allendorf and Ryman , Gharrett and Smoker , Heggberget et al. , Hutchings and Jones , Kendall , Kincaid et. Ocean Conditions on the Production of Salmonids in the North Pacific,” edited by William Pearcy (), summarized existing information linking oceanic conditions .

Salmon and steelhead, species of anadromous fish, once were prolific in the Columbia on late 19th-century cannery records and Indian accounts, it is believed that some 10 million to 16 million adult salmon and steelhead returned to the river each year to spawn prior to about , when European emigration into the basin began to accelerate, and with it the exploitation of salmon.
