Skeena River Fish and Their Habitat

Here is a book recently published by Ecotrust that looks like a must have for anyone interested in the Skeena watershed and it's Salmon.
This book presents the first thorough review of the salmon stocks and fresh water species of the Skeena River. Initial chapters summarize the river’s environment, fish and fisheries, and following chapters examine the physical geography, development history, indigenous use and major salmon stocks of each of the watershed’s sub-basins. This volume makes available for the first time — to researchers, field biologists, fishermen and natural history enthusiasts — the published, and largely unpublished, literature on this productive salmon ecosystem.
Ours is on order.
