World Without Fish

by Mark Kurlansky

Written by a master storyteller, World Without Fish connects all the dots-biology, economics, evolution, politics, climate, history, culture, food, and nutrition-in a way that kids can really understand. It describes how the fish we most commonly eat, including tuna, salmon, cod, swordfish-even anchovies- could disappear within fifty years, and the domino effect it would have: the oceans teeming with jellyfish and turning pinkish orange from algal blooms, the seabirds disappearing, then reptiles, then mammals. It describes the back-and-forth dynamic of fishermen, who are the original environmentalists, and scientists, who not that long ago considered fish an endless resource. It explains why fish farming is not the answer-and why sustainable fishing is, and how to help return the oceans to their natural ecological balance.
