ABSTRACT: As in marine regions throughout other areas of the world, fishes in the Salish Sea serve as hosts for many pathogens, including nematodes, trematodes, protozoans, protists, bacteria, viruses, and crustaceans. Here, we review some of the better‐documented infectious diseases that likely contribute to significant losses among free‐ranging fishes in the Salish Sea and discuss the environmental and ecological factors that may affect the population‐level impacts of disease. Demonstration of these diseases and their impacts to critical and endangered resources provides justification to expand pathogen surveillance efforts and to incorporate disease forecasting and mitigation tools into ecosystem restoration efforts.

For centuries, borders have been central to salmon management customs on the Salish Sea, but how those borders were drawn has had very different effects on the Northwest salmon fishery. Native peoples who fished the Salish Sea--which includes Puget Sound in Washington State, the Strait of Georgia in British Columbia, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca--drew social and cultural borders around salmon fishing locations and found ways to administer the resource in a sustainable way. Nineteenth-century Euro-Americans, who drew the Anglo-American border along the forty-ninth parallel, took a very different approach and ignored the salmon's patterns and life cycle. As the canned salmon industry grew and more people moved into the region, class and ethnic relations changed. Soon illegal fishing, broken contracts, and fish piracy were endemic--conditions that contributed to rampant overfishing, social tensions, and international mistrust. The Nature of Borders is about the ecological effects of imposing cultural and political borders on this critical West Coast salmon fishery. This transnational history provides an understanding of the modern Pacific salmon crisis and is particularly instructive as salmon conservation practices increasingly approximate those of the pre-contact Native past. The Nature of Borders reorients borderlands studies toward the Canada-U.S. border and also provides a new view of how borders influenced fishing practices and related management efforts over time.

Fashioned by the violent volcanism of the Pacific Rim of Fire, plate tectonics, and the sculptural magic wrought by Ice Age glaciers, the Salish Sea straddles the western border between Canada and the United States and is connected to the Pacific Ocean primarily through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This wondrous watery world has its beginnings high in the landscape, where rivulets of melting snow nourish the cascading streams, rivers, and mountains that surround it. The Salish Sea is fed by the almost constant influx of freshwater from British Columbia's Fraser River and thousands of smaller rivers and streams on both sides of the border. The mixing of freshwater and salt water provides the essential building blocks for the region's extraordinary biodiversity. This fascinating visual journey through the Salish Sea combines a scientist's inquiring mind, dramatic photographs, and a lively narrative of compelling stories, all of which impart a sense of wonder for this intricate marine ecosystem and the life that it sustains.

Gorgeous, fascinating and unconventional, the maps in this collection show aspects of the Gulf Islands, the 'Islands in the Salish Sea', that are most beloved by the residents, from heritage orchards, fishing spots and patches of endangered wild orchids to ancient First Nations' sites and bird colonies. The community on each island decided what elements should be depicted, and local artists then created each of the magnificent and wildly different maps. This volume is a treasure-trove of cherished information that could have been lost, presented with imagination and great beauty. The Islands in the Salish Sea Community Mapping Project was coordinated by Sheila Harrington and Judi Stevenson, who live on Saltspring Island.

There is a growing crisis in our oceans: mysterious outbreaks of infectious disease are on the rise. Marine epidemics can cause mass die-offs of wildlife from the bottom to the top of food chains, impacting the health of ocean ecosystems as well as lives on land. Portending global environmental disaster, ocean outbreaks are fueled by warming seas, sewage dumping, unregulated aquaculture, and drifting plastic. Ocean Outbreak follows renowned scientist Drew Harvell and her colleagues into the field as they investigate how four iconic marine animals--corals, abalone, salmon, and starfish--have been devastated by disease. Based on over twenty years of research, this firsthand account of the sometimes gradual, sometimes exploding impact of disease on our ocean's biodiversity ends with solutions and a call to action. Only through policy changes and the implementation of innovative solutions from nature can we reduce major outbreaks, save some ocean ecosystems, and protect our fragile environment.

The Straits Salish Indians of the San Juan and Straits of Georgia's islands were using an advanced technique to catch sockeye salmon hundreds of years ago; probably before Columbus, Vespucci, Bering, Drake and other European explorers were even born. That technique survives today and is considered to be one of the most environmentally sensitive of all the methods of catching fish. The indigenous peoples we now know as the Lummi, the Samish, the Semiahmoo, the Sooke, the Songish, and the Saanich, were a distinct group particularly distinguished by their invention of, and use of, an ingenious apparatus known today as the reef net; an apparatus especially designed to catch the elusive sockeye salmon. This book tells the story of the reef net as invented by an unknown genius among the Straits Salish peoples of hundreds of years ago. This book is also an attempt to examine the lessons to be learned from the past and their potential for informing the future; what can we learn from the past to enhance our approach to the future? The lessons of the reef net include respect for a people capable of developing an advanced technology based on the natural world they lived in. The lessons of the reef net lead to an increased respect for the environment. The lessons of the reef net include material for reflection about the value of self-reliance and an entrepreneurial spirit. The lessons of the reef net have much to teach about the value of community and people working in a common cause. Invented hundreds of years ago, the reef net is still in use today. According to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife: "The term, selective fishing, has been used to describe any of several fishing gears and management objectives, yet at its most basic definition a selective fishery is one in which by catch (the capture of undesired species) is avoided altogether or is able to be released alive and unharmed. As the Department of Fish & Wildlife has experimented with selective commercial fishing gear and moved toward selective fishing practices in recreational fishing, reef nets stand out as the original and still the best in selective fishing. Practiced by the Indians of the Puget Sound region using materials gathered locally, reef nets are unique to the area. Modern materials and hydraulics have improved efficiency but the basic methods remain the same. Reef nets do not gill or surround salmon with a net. Rather they count on natural and manmade structures to lead the salmon into a shallow laid net which is then lifted and the fish spilled into holding pens. Minimal handling and stress coupled with the ability to keep the fish alive make reef nets the most selective fishing gear available. Reef nets are fixed to one location and only catch migrating adult salmon that swim through their gear. For years reef nets have released non-target salmon species when management needs dictate. Mortality and bycatch are lower than any other fishing gear. Today reef nets are used in northern Puget Sound, targeting sockeye and pink salmon during summer months and coho and chum salmon during the fall."
