    In his new book, “Salmon: A Fish, the Earth, and the History of Their Common Fate,” Kurlansky does something similar — but, this time, also slightly different. As anybody who has bought king salmon at $30 a pound can tell you, salmon are not ordinary. They are glamorous. Part lyrical natural history, part social and philosophical manifesto, Totem Salmon tells the story of a determined band of locals who've worked for over two decades to save one of the last purely native species of salmon in California. The book-call it the zen of salmon restoration-traces the evolution of the Mattole River Valley community in northern California as it4/5.

    Wild Salmon Life Cycle Arriving at her home stream, a female builds a nest, or redd, in ˜ne, clean gravel. As a female deposits her thousands of eggs, a male releases milt, fertilizing them. Both male and female salmon die soon after spawning, except steelhead and cutthroat, which may survive another year or more to spawn again.   The book traces how that change came about, including images of rivers teeming with fish with sawdust-choked gills, rivers dammed to them, and the start up of salmon fisheries and farms. Concern for salmon is reflected in voices from the past speaking to the fish’s value and the need to protect it, including from Charles Darwin and Charles Brand: Patagonia.

    Next, I went on a quest to learn everything I could to live longer – and younger! I interviewed our world’s top health and aging experts, read stacks of books and immersed myself in cutting edge research studies about longevity. Then I turned all I learned into a fun-to-read, fast-paced book, called Life Is Long. Pacific salmon are an important biological and economic resource of countries of the North Pacific rim. They are also a unique group of fish possessing unusually complex life histories. There are seven species of Pacific salmon, five occurring on both the North American and Asian continents (sockeye, pink, chum, chinook, and coho) and two (masu and amago) only in Asia.
