Product Description


“In his histories of cod and oysters, Mark Kurlansky described how those species once thrived in the wild, and how they were depleted. [World Without Fish] casts an even wider net and, with the help of superb illustrations and an interwoven graphic novel by Frank Stockton, creates a compelling narrative for young people.”
The New York Times

 "A wonderfully fast-paced and engaging primer on the key questions surrounding fish and the sea. Great for a classroom or as a beach read"
Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish

"Mark Kurlanksy exposes one of the most alarming but least-known catastrophes of our time: The depletion of our oceans. While raising the alarm, Mark has also given us the keys to solving the crisis, specific things that each of us can do to help restore our ocean planet."
Michael Sutton, Vice President, Monterey Bay Aquarium

From the Back Cover

Can you imagine a world without fish? It’s not as crazy as it sounds. But if we keep doing things the way we’ve been doing things, fish could become extinct within fifty years. So let’s change the way we do things!

HASH(0xa39f37f8) out of 5 stars Awesome April 26 2011
By D. Demoin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great for a young scientist or avid reader who wants to read something, be entertained by the story, and learn some key concepts about science. Great for struggling readers too. This book would be great in a classroom to help students see the cause and effect relationship of humans on our world, as well as helping students see that their opinion and thoughts matter. Consumerism is also touched in this book along with graphic novel pages to summarize each chapter and help synthesize student's knowledge before moving to the next chapter.

Clear, straightforward and candid history of fishing worldwide, and the current state of fish and the oceans. I was amazed at all I did not know! A great adult read.

HASH(0xa39f3fc0) out of 5 stars This book changed my life Sept. 13 2012
By L. Silbert - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I can't buy fish in the supermarket eyes are open. I highly recommend this book to all adults. Kids will understand it much more quickly and easily than adults, actually, because they are not the set-in-stone consumers that we "grown-ups" have become. It is definitely a bitter pill to swallow, but if we don't each take personal responsibility for our role in the consumption cycle, and CHANGE OUR HABITS AND PURCHASES, then we will doom ourselves to the fate described in this book. Read it!!

I bought this book for my grandson, but quickly discovered I like it just as much as he does. An important issue written in a style that young children can easily understand. 5 stars! :-)
