Part of the Orca Wild series, this nonfiction book for middle-grade readers explores the iconic life cycle of salmon, their contributions to the ecosystem and their struggle for survival. Illustrated with photos throughout.

Salmon: Swimming for Survival introduces us to the dramatic life story of salmon.

These fish hatch in streams, swim extreme distances out to sea, and then migrate home to where they were born to produce the next generation. But today their habitats and very survival are threatened by human activity. This book looks at the unique biology of salmon, their importance to many Indigenous communities, their cultural and economic impact and the vital role they play in ecosystems. With profiles from scientists, educators, fishers and more, learn about the people who are working hard to change the uncertain future of salmon and improve the chance that these iconic fish can survive for generations to come.

Ideas to help wild salmon. Glossary. Resources. Index. Full-color photographs, maps, and illustrations.
