If you visit Norway, you are going to be eating a lot of salmon. Here's a story of how salmon makes its way to your dinner plate. Award-winning author, Mark Kurlansky, who also wrote Cod: A biography of a fish that changed the world, Salt: A world history; and World without Fish, employs his signature multi-century storytelling to chronicle the harrowing yet awe-inspiring life cycle of salmon. Kurlansky traveled widely and observed salmon and those who both pursue and protect them in the Pacific and the Atlantic, in Ireland, Norway, Iceland, Japan, and even in the robust but not as frequently visited Kamchatka Peninsula. He observes and reports on the misdirected attempts to manipulate salmon and its environments.
