Abstract:

Charles Clover reveals the dark underbelly and hidden costs of putting seafood on the table at home or in restaurants. From the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo to a seafood restaurant on the North Sea and a trawler off the coast of Spain, Clover pursues the sobering truth about the plight of fish. Along with the ecological impact wrought by industrial fishing, he reports on the implications for our diet, particularly our need for omega-3 fatty acids. This account serves as a timely warning to the general public as well as to scientists, regulators, legislators, and all fishing enthusiasts.
