Mark Kurlansky - Salmon: A Fish, the Earth, and the History of Their Common Fate — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Thursday, March 12, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The prolific and award-winning author of books on topics including baseball, food, and Basque culture, Kurlansky is perhaps best known for his classic Cod. His new book is both an urgent call to action and a richly illustrated natural and cultural history of the salmon. Outlining the fish’s life cycle and visiting salmon habitats around the world, Kurlansky details the species’ role in both terrestrial and marine—fresh- and saltwater—ecosystems and traces the heavy toll centuries of human meddling have caused. To save these endangered creatures—which also amounts to saving the planet—we must undam the rivers, clean up the water, end pesticide use, restore forests, and get climate change under control.
