Product description


“Research that brings muckraking books such as Fast Food Nation to mind.” ―Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Grescoe takes us on an international tour of controversial cuisines--shark fin soup in China, whale sashimi in Japan, monkfish tail in New York City--meanwhile offering an overview of the corrupt practices that have put the oceans (and our health) in danger.” ―Salon

“Grescoe's tale hits all the right notes. It's an entrée you'll remember.” ―Fortune Small Business

Bottomfeeder is Grescoe's story…a starting point for reflecting on where each of us draws the line about what's acceptable to eat and what's not.” ―Gastronomica

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
