Salmon: A Scientific Memoir by Jude Isabella
An excellent book that examines the diverse constellation of scientific (both Indigenous and Western) knowledge production concerning the ecological and anthropological contributions of salmon in the Pacific Northwest. Isabella is a journalist so her writing is clear and accessible to the average lay person. A really informative read for anyone who fishes for any anadromous species on the Northwest Coast. While taking a particularly BC focus, it’s a concise overview of the knowledge and research that often seems ignored by bureaucrats on both sides of the 49th parallel. Easily read in a day. Highly recommended.
