The Fishes of the Sea

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

In this wide-ranging book Dave Preble, who has spent a lifetime fishing the waters of the East Coast, provides a fascinating overview of the history and nature of both commercial and sport fishing in New England waters. He brings to life the glory days when fish were plentiful and new technology made huge catches commonplace. He hauntingly describes the havoc wrought by overfishing in the 1980's, and finally expresses the hope that a new ethical approach to nature and strict adherence to quotas will combine with the fortuitous resurgence of species believed near extinction. The scientific and technical discourse about the major species???cod, stripers, bluefish, tuna, sharks, etc.???is interspersed with exciting tales reminiscent of The Perfect Storm. Through it all, we experience firsthand a unique, highly dangerous lifestyle, always at the brink of disaster.
