Salmon, People and Place: A Biologist’s Search for Salmon Recovery

Oregon State Press, 2013

After visiting my nearby fish hatchery recently, I decided to re-read Jim Lichatowich’s 2013 book. Having read it five years ago when it first came out, I recalled that it brought the issue of hatcheries, wild fish and salmon recovery into sharp focus. I needed to be reminded of its message. It is written by someone with over 40 years smack dab in the middle of things, a man with open eyes and open mind, not beholden to any particular interest group or management ideology. I wanted to read it again, not to discount the approach and value of hatcheries in salmon recovery and management, but to better understand how this one technology should fit in into a broader, effective salmon management and recovery effort. Jim’s book again helped me see the bigger picture.
