Taylor (history, Iowa State U.) examines the social, cultural, economic, and environmental contexts of the decline of salmon in the Pacific Northwest from the aboriginal fisheries through the advent of industrial fishing and the rise of hatcheries all the way down to the current crisis of the salmon fisheries as they face the threat of collapse today. He argues that solutions to the problem are frustrated by the inability of commercial and sport fishers, fish culturalist, environmentalists, smelters, irrigators, bargers, and dam agencies to find common ground.
