Summary
"Packed with nutrients and naturally low in fat, fish is the last animal we can still eat in good conscience--or can we? In this eye-opening book, environmental journalist Clover argues that our passion for fish is unsustainable. Seventy-five percent of the world's fish stocks are now fully exploited or overfished; the most popular varieties risk extinction within the next few decades. Clover trawls the globe for answers, from Tokyo to New England. He joins hardy sailors on high-tech boats, interviews top chefs whose menu selections can influence the fate of entire species, and examines the ineffective organizations regulating the world's fisheries. He argues that governments as well as consumers can take steps to reverse this disturbing trend before it's too late. The price of Chilean sea bass may seem outrageous, but this book shows its real cost to the ecosystem is far greater.--From publisher description."--From source other than the Library of Congress
