Abstract:

"Although humans have long depended on oceans ecosystems, only recently has human influence on these resources dramatically increased, transforming and undermining marine environments throughout the world. Marine ecosystems are in a crisis that is global in scope, rapid in pace, and colossal in scale. In The Tragedy of the Commodity, Stefano B. Longo, Rebecca Clausen, and Brett Clark explore the role human influence plays in this crisis, highlighting the socioeconomic forces that are at the heart of this looming ecological problem. In a critique of the classic theory "the tragedy of the commons," the authors move beyond superficial explanations and argue analyzing the commodification of marine resources is crucial for explaining the depletion of fisheries and the development of environmentally suspect means of aquaculture. To illustrate this argument, the book features two fascinating case studies--the thousand-year history of the bluefin tuna fishery in the Mediterranean and the massive Pacific salmon fishery. Longo, Clausen, and Clark describe how new fishing technologies, transformations in social relationships, and the expansion of global seafood markets combined to alter radically and permanently crucial marine ecosystems." --Back cover.
