The next portfolio contains seven gouache paintings of various Pacific-based salmon by David Denbigh, a noted Canadian marine illustrator and artist. The last portfolio, entitled "The Cycle," includes prints of four watercolors depicting salmon in their native habitats by Yugoslavian-born Rudi Kovach and two copies each of two colorful gouache paintings by Denbigh.
