About A World Without Fish
The culmination of a lifelong dedication to marine conservation, this lushly illustrated book is Mark Kurlansky’s legacy to his 10-year-old daughter and fishing companion, Talia. A concise overview packaged within a fascinating narrative that reads like fiction, World Without Fish connects all the dots—biology, economics, evolution, politics, climate, history, culture, food and nutrition—into a summary of the circumstances facing our oceans.
