End of the Line: A look at global and local fisheries, March 19 2011
To start this review, I will have to compare this fantastic book to the documentary of the same name. The documentary version mainly only focuses on tuna and the overfishing impact. This book however focuses on a wide range of overfished and underfished species (including different types of tuna, redfish, code, plaice, etc) and goes into specifics on how as a consumer it is our choices in what fish we buy that effects the amount of that species that is taken out of our oceans and lakes. This book is a great accompaniment to the documentary.
Anyone who eats fish should be reading this book now! We need to be more aware of these problems to make a change. In this day in age, you cannot plead the "ignorance card". This book has had a profound effect on my life. I only buy canned tuna from Wild Planet Foods which only catches tuna using rod and reel. Sure it's more expensive but it's worth it.
BUY THIS BOOK!
