Salmon, People, and Place

A Biologist’s Search for Salmon Recovery

Oregon State University Press
Drawing on his forty-three-year career in the field, Jim Lichatowich
describes the myths, assumptions, and beliefs underlying salmon
management and recovery programs. In Salmon, People, Place, he
reflects on the failure of plans based on the idea that natural
salmon-sustaining ecosystems can be duplicated by hatcheries and the
incorporation of salmon into the industrial food production system.
Asserting the need for a new "salmon story," Lichatowich
provides management agencies and individuals specific steps designed to
change the way we all think about salmon – actions necessary to
achieve sustainable relationships between salmon, people, and place.

The author of the award-winning book, Salmon without Rivers: AHistory of the Pacific Salmon Crisis, JimLichatowich has worked on Pacific salmon issues as aresearcher, manager, and scientific advisor for forty-threeyears.
