In King of Fish The Thousand Year Run of Salmon author David Montgomery analyzes the decline in many cases the near extirpation of once abundant salmon fisheries in Great Britain and northern Europe in New England and Canada and in the Pacific Northwest First published in 2003 the book is still fresh and relevant an engrossing read chock full of information and ending with practical insights and a call to actionThe key theme of King of Fish which the author thoroughly documents is that the historic decline of salmon stocks has not occurred because people didn t know any better or because they just didn t care Instead the depredation of the fishery happened despite the best efforts of thoughtful people and bodies politic to protect and preserve them How could this beWhen fisheries management and conservation have clashed with financial interests in development and exploitation the salmon have consistently lost not every single time but often enough that the incremental and inexorable accumulation of individual short term decisions has eroded and whittled away salmon populations and habitats to the point that they collapsedMontgomery demonstrates through numerous examples that you can literally bank on the economic value of fish harvest or hydropower or irrigation or any number of other ephemeral interests to outweigh the uncertainties and risk based arguments on the other sideThere is a systemic imbalance in these interests that all but guarantees that the fish will lose whenever decision making is left to local interests There are only two notable exceptions pre industrial Britain when royal authority provided a respite from overfishing and Alaska where federal regulation has provided a significant measure of protection for salmon interestsMontgomery sums it up neatly One of the most obvious lessons of past experience is that local control rarely protects salmon over the long run without direction from a higher authority whether the king a federal agency or as for Native Americans the Creator through deeply ingrained cultural practices 230 That is the lesson taught by the global history of salmon Will we learn from itThe King of Fish is just as informative and thought provoking today as when it was first published And its core lesson that laws and regulations and centralized authority to back them up are needed to restrain unfettered exploitation of natural resources has applications far beyond salmon It is the story of conservation writ large with obvious analogies to effective public policy on climate change fracking wilderness preservation and a host of similar issues
