Although DeWitt Gilbert (1896-1981) was the author of numerous fisheries articles, the material in this book was not intended for publication. Rather, the manuscript was left with his family as a personal record of his views and his extensive involvement with Pacific coast fisheries as editor of Pacific Fisherman magazine (now merged with National Fisherman) and as commissioner of the International Pacific Salmon Commission. Fortunately, through the foresight of Harold Lokken, director of the Seattle-based Pacific Fisheries Foundation, and with cooperation of individuals from the University of Washington School of Fisheries and Gilbert's family, his manuscript was resurrected and made available to the public.
