About this book

Compiled under the auspices of the Center for Marine Conservation (USA), IUCN, WWF, World Bank and UNEP, this compilation of the work of more than 100 scientists and environmentalists aims to lay down the ground rules for sustaining marine biological diversity.

In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Brutus said to Cassius: 'There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at its flood leads on to fortune.' Humanity today needs a flood of awareness of the importance of the world's oceans to life on earth. This book is at the forefront of written work that contributes to our taking the urgent actions needed to protect our seas and, consequently, our selves. The book is comprehensive, factual, and fascinating. We must take this tide in its flood to protect not just humanity, but the entire biosphere. --Graeme Kelleher
