Excellent book. I've learned so much, including that I have a lot more thinking aboit what to do as a fish eater right now when the power of consumption choices is so minimal.and we need powerful policy decisions.

Fascinating and informative. I've been reading it in pieces between less interesting books. Although this isn't a very old book, already so much has changed (particularly our environmental policy) that I don't know how accurate much of the present-to-future sections are anymore. I hope we get it together soon.

We tend to credit physical scientists and inventors with creativity, intelligence, and hard work, and hold them in high esteem. "Four Fish" points out that inventions aren't limited to electrical and mechanical devices and machines. Paul Greenberg documents the innovation and creativity in fish farming and those who overcame huge obstacles to increase the availability of many of our popular fish. The book was much more interesting than I would have initially guessed when I selected it.

Through the lens of the salmon, bass, cod and tuna fisheries, a thoughtful examination of the effects of overfishing, ill-conceived policies, and domestic farming have had on our last great resource. The decline of Georges Bank and the Massachusetts’ fishing industry have convinced me of the severity of this issue. Highly recommended if you have concerns about the environment and our food stream.
