Praise for Salmon Wars

"Dennis Brown is one of those long-time passionate observers, and in his new book, Salmon Wars: The Battle for the West Coast Salmon Fishery (Harbour Publishing, 408 pages), he outlines in detail the many battles and wars waged by consumers, politians, bureaucrats and fisherman almost since the province began...Salmon Wars is not a lament for a lost cause, for Brown doesn't believe that's the case. Instead, he ably shows this to be a troubled industry in need of constant love and attention."
-Greg Joyce, The Vancouver Sun

“[Brown’s] passion infuses every page with excitement, but he never loses sight of the facts. Canada’s salmon problems are America’s salmon problems, and this book casts a new ligh on the situation by nature of its objectivity and Brown’s expertise.
“This is an impressive book about nature and people.”
—Dan Hay, Oregon Statesman Journal

“Everyone interested in the future of salmon and the well-being of the west coast working people should give this book a careful read.”
—Kimball Cariou, People’s Voice

“This is an outstanding work of research and key publication in understanding the ongoing complexities of the West Coast salmon fishery.”
—Ann Turner, Canadian Book Review Annual

“This book captures the tragic reality brilliantly in this one very revealing case study. Coast communities everywhere should read and learn from this very valuable book.”
