Now in paper! In the tradition of Mark Kurlansky’s Cod, famed marine researcher and illustrator Richard Ellis brings us a work of scientific achievement that will forever change the way we think about fish and fishing.
The bluefin tuna is one of the world’s biggest, fastest, and most highly evolved marine animals, as well as the source of its most popular delicacies. Now, however, it hovers on the brink of extinction. Here Ellis explains how a fish that was once able to thrive has become a commodity--and how the natural world and the global economy converge on our plates.
