"Becoming Salmon is the first ethnographic account of salmon aquaculture, the most recent turn in the human history of animal domestication. As fish are enrolled in new regimes of marine domestication, traditional distinctions between fish and animals are reconfigured, recasting farmed fish as sentient beings, capable of feeling pain and subject to animal welfare legislation. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in Norway and Australia, the author traces farmed Atlantic salmon through contemporary industrial practices, and shows how salmon are bred to be hungry, globally mobile, and alien in their watersheds of origin. Attentive to the economic context of industrial food production as well as the mundane practices of caring for fish, it offers novel perspectives on domestication, human-animal relations, and food production"--Provided by publisher.

All followers of Jesus Christ are called to become people transformed by the Holy Spirit so we can live out Gods heart for the world in terms of Christs great commission. To do that often requires Christians to move against cultural sameness, familial expectations, secular norms, religious boundaries, and even personal emotional issues. Obedience to God in todays world requires the lifestyle of a Salmon Swimmera Christian equipped to overcome whatever obstacles keep them from fulfilling Gods global agenda. Such commitment has intriguing parallels to the journey of Atlantic salmon in their effort to swim upstream to spawn the next generation of salmon.

Every year, wild salmon travel hundreds of miles upstream. They fight fierce river currents, leap over rocks and small waterfalls, and die by the thousands of starvation, disease, and exposure to cold. Even if they surmount these obstacles, the fish risk becoming dinner for hungry predators like bears, birds, and humans. Guided by a keen sense of smell, the survivors travel to their original hatching grounds, where they breed, spawn, and quickly die. Salmon reveals this amazing life cycle to be just part of the larger story of these fascinating fish. The cultural life of salmon, Peter Coates explains, is rich with myths about “the king of fish,” from lands as diverse as Nova Scotia, Norway, Korea, and California. Coates’s history details the salmon’s cherished symbolic meaning as well as its current status as the ignoble product of fish hatcheries. Encompassing evolutionary, ecological, and cultural perspectives, Salmon is the perfect book for anyone who has ever eaten or tried to catch this delightful—and delectable—fish.

The Askandar is a continuation of the story ETMA PNIKRE. The Askandar, the great starship has escaped with its six thousand survivors from the cremation of the planet Earth and now rushes onward in its journey through the blackest darkness of the infinite ocean of the universe. In the starship, within its occupants, live all of the natural instincts and emotions, which had fluxed and flowed within the cultures, the survivors had left behind. No one had given much consideration to the great broad spectrum of the human condition, which would demand its satisfaction, even though it had been stripped from its natural home. The individual's instinctive creature found itself resident within a closed capsule, where it still needed to satisfy its ancient secret yearnings, and to find contentment for the beast, which secretly underlies civilized humanity, that it might be peaceably consoled. And so, though Earth and its societies had all become just a distant cinder, the mysterious ways of Mother Earth had been so patiently distilled into every cell and every fiber of the people on the starship, that her ways, her embedded instincts, her emotions of love, hatred, and savagery, rode within the ship in the safe luxury of each individual survivor.
