Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0871569450, Hardcover)Biologist Michael Berrill thinks that overfishing will turn the oceans into the most important frontier of environmentalism in the 21st century. "We are obviously close to, and probably exceeding, the maximum global catch that is possible to sustain," he writes, showing that the total weight of the annual fish catch has quadrupled since 1950. The Plundered Seas occasionally veers toward the technocratic, with its descriptions of New Zealand fishing laws and the like, but it rarely dwells on such subjects for too long. The Plundered Seas is written for general readers who won't be put off by a bit of detail, and includes a few sly observations: "If there ever were a fish destined for extermination by humans, it must be salmon, for it tastes too good, it looks too good, and it swims right into the hands, or nets, of inshore and upriver fishers."
