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

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome April 26 2011
By D. Demoin - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for adults as much as youth! Aug. 7 2011
By Betsy - Published on Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars For my grandson AND me Jan. 17 2013
By Weber D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In my usual preview of gifts for my 12-yr-old grandson, I became engrossed in reading this excellent depiction of this specific problem of climate change. My grandson sped through it once and then began re-reading it again. He was also excited to share it with his science teacher. Finally, two friends of my daughter's, who are researchers in water ecology, visited over the holidays, saw the book, and became excited enough to get their own copies. An excellent introduction to the complex issues of ecology for middle-schoolers and above.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life Sept. 13 2012
By L. Silbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I can't buy fish in the supermarket anymore...my 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!!
