A Taste of the Past
History of Salmon as Food with Nic Mink
This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda talks to Nic Mink, professor at the Center for Urban Ecology at Butler University, President and co-founder of Sitka Salmon Shares, and author of Salmon, A Global History. Nic tells us about the various evolutionary mechanisms that salmon have developed to survive. Later, Nic and Linda discuss the developments in catching and storing salmon - from wild to farm-raised, line caught and canned. Tune in to hear the whole discussion!
