This book follows one fish as she develops from a tiny pink egg into a full-grown salmon. Selina explores the place she was born so it is imprinted in her brain so she can return to the same river tributary to lay her eggs. She has a narrow escape from becoming food for other, larger fish, birds, eels and even humans. Don Downer is chair of the Aquatic Centre for Research and Education, is involved with the Fish Friends school program, sponsored by the Atlantic Salmon Federation, and does contract work relating to salmon for Fisheries and Oceans.
