Customer Review

on 4 June 2013
This was the first book I read on over-fishing and marine conservation, and I would recommend it if you want an outsiders view on the global fishing industry.

Written almost in the style of a thriller novel, right from the introduction you are hooked (profuse apologies for the appauling pun!).

All joking aside, this is a truly thought-provoking book, detailing man's almost obsessive lust to catch the very last fish in the sea, whilst at the same time hoping that things will somehow, miraculously, improve.

It is fair to say that my view on the global fishing industry is very much different to before I opened this book, and has changed the way I see fish in the local supermarket to the point where I rarely buy fish as I cannot be certain where it has come from.

The lack of a 5-star rating should not deter you from purchasing this book, the fifth star was not added as I felt the book to be a little out-dated, being published in 2005, leaving 8 years of chronic mismanagement of the worlds fisheries uncovered.
