Description

Part of the America at Work series, Fishing explains how fish farmers in Maine raise salmon and halibut, and traces the fascinating life journey of a wild salmon in Alaska. Combining fact and fiction with colorful illustrations, this book delivers an early lesson in appreciating and protecting our natural resources.

Fishing introduces young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in some of America's leading resource-based industries.
