Summary

From codfish to tuna, and sea turtles to seals, entire populations of marine creatures are being driven to the brink of extinction. In this alarming, yet hopeful book, acclaimed author and artist Richard Ellis ventures from the depths of the Chesapeake Bay to the bustling aisles of Tokyo's Tsukiji Fish Market and beyond to reveal the way the hunting, fishing, and collecting of aquatic animals is rapidly emptying the ocean of its inhabitants. Likened by critics to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, The Empty Ocean presents an impassioned, compelling plea for a more prudent approach to the world's sea creatures. Book jacket.
