Description: Born in the tumbling, oxygen-rich waters of a Pacific Coast stream, Salgair quickly learns about survival of the fittest. Follow Salgair, a steelhead trout, as he grows from a small fry in a river to a trophy fish in the ocean, and experience the dangers, both man-made and natural, that he faces during his life.
This story is presented to the young who are interested in how the lifecycle of a steelhead salmon works. Waylaying the usual point-form facts, this title is designed to encourage the future fisherpersons, biologists and conservationists to learn what obstacles and adventures a steelhead trout must go through to complete his life cycle.
