Four Fish: Not really about fishing    

'Paul Greenberg - calling for peace with the ocean'    .

This book is not really about fishing. Paul Greenberg, writer and fisherman, does examine four fish that dominate our menus, but what he is doing is revealing our damaged relationship with the ocean and its inhabitants, a subject dear to many a cruising sailor's heart.

Paul Greenberg and his book -  .. .  
This book is the winner of the James Beard Award and a Grantham Prize finalist

As not only a writer but also a life-long fisherman Paul Greenberg takes us on a journey, examining the four fish that dominate our menus: salmon, sea bass, cod, and tuna.

Investigating the forces that get fish to our dinner tables, Greenberg reveals our damaged relationship with the ocean and its inhabitants.

Just three decades ago, nearly everything we ate from the sea was wild.

Today, rampant overfishing and an unprecedented biotech revolution have brought us to a point where wild and farmed fish occupy equal parts of a complex marketplace.

Four Fish offers a way for us to move toward a future in which healthy and sustainable seafood is the rule rather than the exception.

This is a readable and informative presentation of an interesting issue. Any reader who's interested in the future of the ocean or more knowledge about what we eat, will likely enjoy this book.
