I live in the UAE, in a small area known as Um Al Quwain. We have an enormous stretch of mangroves, full of all sorts of wonderful wildlife.This book has made me appreciate this wonder even more.

I thought the story was going to be all doom and gloom, but it was far from it. Not only was the writing smooth and enjoyable, the subject matter - Mangroves was both refreshing and interesting. If you want something a bit different to read, and maybe even a new subject to donate to, then this book is wonderful.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A really excellent book and so very well written. If you are interested in nature conservation of any sort, or interested in fisheries or mangroves and especially mangroves as this book is all about them, then you should read this book. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to think about 12 Oct. 2015
By Charles A. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Most of us never stop to wonder where the dish we eat in some fancy restaurant comes from. What, for instance, does that dish of succulent shrimp in front of you have to do with murdered fishermen in Honduras or killer hurricanes on the Gulf coast?
In Let Them Eat Shrimp: The Tragic Disappearance of the Rainforests of the Sea, Kennedy Warne writes about the disappearance of the world’s mangrove forests, nearly impenetrable masses of trees and plants along some of our shorelines that serve as great breeding grounds for shrimp and other marine species. In easy-to-understand, nontechnical language, he shows how the rampant exploitation of these irreplaceable resources impacts peoples’ lives, local economies, and the global ecosphere. Warne details, in stark words, how the world’s fate is inextricably linked to the fate of the mangroves.
He gives you something to think about the next time you order a shrimp cocktail.

This writer is well versed in his topic and wrote in a clear and informative style. If you've been wondering why shrimp have been so underpriced in the stores, this book will show you the hidden costs.

By ja c - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An important book that shows how money trumps the well being of natural habitats and the native population that depends on the resources of these areas. The longer we allow the destruction of our natural forests and swamps the longer it will take to revitalize them once we realize our mistakes.
My small effort to help will be to never eat farm raised shrimp.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must read if you are genuinly interested in mangroves / wetlands . 23 Mar. 2011
By hans voerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book describes extremely clear (for anyone who is interested ) about the negative impact of shrimp farms on mangroves. Besides that it describes in an easy to understand way the way mangroves work.
I work daily in mangroves with tourists , and this is a great book and must read for those with some kind of interest in mangroves.
