About this book

A spectacular, brilliantly illustrated celebration of 52 fish species that live in the rich waters of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Today, overfishing and a changing ocean environment threaten many fish stocks. Yet despite the many ongoing challenges, the fishery remains central to the economic well being of North America. It is also at the core of cultural identity – from Newfoundland and Labrador to the U.S. Eastern Seaboard. Here's the Catch: The Fish We Harvest from the Northwest Atlantic explores what could be lost or gained from this historic resource in the coming years – depending on our actions.
