This is a social and environmental history of the fisheries of southeastern Alaska from pre-European contact to the present. Arnold (history, Columbia Basin College) has organized the material into five thematic chapters that explore aboriginal salmon management; assess the impact of the fur trade, Russian settlement, and American industrialization on Indian salmon fisheries; explore federal management of the Alaskan salmon fisheries and the struggles between local fishermen and federal salmon managers; compare Native American and Euro-American perspectives on work and nature; and explore contemporary debates over the limited-entry policy, Native subsistence fishing, and global salmon farming.
