About this book

Trawling on an industrial scale in the North Sea smashes everything it does not catch, taking 16 lbs of dead marine animals to produce just 1lb of sole. Regulation isn't working, with fishermen losing money, dolphins dying unnecessarily and fish stocks collapsing, despite the warning of the extinction of cod in the seas off Cape Cod. This book looks at the role of conservationists, the governments and multi-national companies and considers some models for recovery, for example how Barents Sea Cod, Icelandic Cod, North Sea herring have been rescued from near extinction, the possibilities of fish farming and the potential of locally managed offshore marine reserves. 'The global fisheries story desperately needs to be told in book form, and I cannot think of anyone better qualified to tell it.' George Monbiot, author of The Captive Slave
