Ocean Bankruptcy: World Fisheries on the Brink of Disaster

Ocean Bankruptcy: World Fisheries on the Brink of Disaster Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This breakthrough book describes the games that nations and organizations play in order to exploit the ocean's migratory fishery resources in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean waters. It examines the attitudes and actions of different countries, fishermen, and consumers, all lobbying for greater allocations for themselves while the supply of fish is being rapidly depleted. Stephen Sloan weaves together his provable theory that the oceans are being depleted three times faster than is reported by scientists. He uses simple formulas and addresses what the numbers mean in a biological/ecological sense, and whether they match up with those found in statistical reports.

Ocean Bankruptcy offers a fresh look at the world of fisheries conservation. The author tells this unique story through accounts of international meetings of government delegations, lobbyists, special-interest groups, and nongovernmental environmental organizations. The book utilizes nonscientific jargon that will appeal to the large number of people who are concerned about the health of our oceans, and ultimately, the health of our planet.

Synopsis:

This is a global issue that can no longer be avoided.
