4.0 out of 5 stars
Best buy on North Atlantic Seafood, 29 Nov 2003
Being a professional within North Atlantic Seafood I know there are miles between books on this specific topic. One would have guessed that a lack of quantity will mean a lack of quality. That is not the case with Alan Davidson's book. It is the most thorough piece of work on North Atlantic Seafood ever made. Alan Davidson knows that North Atlantic Seafood is not only fish, but surely also crustaceans, and he has even included sea-urchin. But Alan Davidson forgot the snow crab (as one of the largest export items from Greenland). And like it or not: the Greenlanders, the Faro Islanders, the Icelanders and the Norwegians do hunt and eat sea mammals. So I will save the fifth star to the next edition which hopefully will include these 'minor details'.
