There is a crisis evolving because of over-fishing. Some predict that at current levels, all major fish stocks will have collapsed by 2050. In this compelling and meticulously researched book, Professor Callum Roberts provides a fascinating account of man's relationship with the sea, giving particular emphasis to the errors of fishing practices in the past, and starkly predicting the troubles of the future. The Unnatural History of the Sea is an impassioned yet engaging plea to recover the richness and diversity of marine life to ensure a healthy marine world for future generations.
