9780143119463: Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food

This book is available in another title with the same text - Four Fish: A journey from the ocean to your plate(ISBN 9781846140020)

We eat more fish than ever before. But what's the story behind the fish on your plate? Where did it come from? Which fish can we buy without worrying? What's the difference between wild, farmed and organic? What does overfishing mean - and should humans just stop eating fish altogether?

Paul Greenberg takes us on an eye-opening culinary journey from trawler to table, travelling to fair trade Eskimo fisheries, Norwegian mega salmon farms and rough South Pacific seas in search of wild tuna. Along the way he gives us the facts about fish, showing how the choices we make when we're faced with a seafood menu or supermarket shelf affect the whole world.

Review:

Finally we have learned that food is best when produced on a small scale in accordance with the rhythms of our planet ... Warm and witty, Four Fish takes this concept to the ocean. Seafood deserves the same kind of respect and political awareness as food from the land. Maybe more (Alice Waters, Chez Panisse )

We are lucky to have the exceptional journalist and writer, Paul Greenberg turn his attention to one of the greatest threats to our food supply, the depletion of the world's fisheries ... Greenberg will change the way you think about the fish you eat (Amanda Hesser, Food Columnist The New York Times )

If you've ever ordered salmon, if you've ever slurped a bowl of chowder, if you've ever sat down for sushi, Paul Greenberg's friendly and thoughtful book will lure you in, surprise you, probably shock you, and certainly make you think ... Read this book (Trevor Corson, Bestselling Author Of The Secret Life Of Lobsters And The Story Of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga Of Raw Fish And Rice )

Four Fish is not only the best analysis I've seen of the current state of both wild and farmed fish - it's a terrific read (Mark Bittman, Author Of How To Cook Everything And Food Matters )

Important and stimulating ... a necessary book for anyone truly interested in what we take from the sea to eat, and how, and why ( New York Times Book Review )

Greenberg writes with tremendous knowledge and passion to tell the engrossing story of the impact of history, geography and politics on our seafood, and offers a clear-eyed manifesto for the future of fish ( FT )

Paul Greenberg observes ... we are at a significant moment ( Economist )

Accessible and enlightening ... It's not Greenberg's way to preach; he's happier letting the facts speak for themselves ( Observer )

Required reading for anyone who eats seafood ...Greenberg is an unfailingly entertaining writer, and his book arms you with the information you need to make intelligent choices when you are confronted by the ... offerings at the fish counter ( Atlantic )

Lucid, readable ... a story well told (Charles Clover Sunday Times )

An elegantly composed and strikingly level-headed inquiry into our relationship with the fish we eat and the waters that sustain them (Tom Fort Sunday Telegraph )

A powerful case for action ... combining on-the-ground and on-the-ocean reporting from the Yukon to Greece, from the waters off New England to the Mekong Delta, along with accounts of some stirring fishing trips, Greenberg makes a powerful argument ... marvellous exploration of that contradiction, a necessary book for anyone interested in what we take from the sea to eat, and how, and why (Sam Sifton Scotsman )

A necessary book for anyone truly interested in what we take from the sea to eat, and how, and why. -Sam Sifton, The New York Times Book Review. Writer and life-long fisherman Paul Greenberg takes us on a journey, examining the four fish that dominate our menus: salmon, sea bass, cod, and tuna. Investigating the forces that get fish to our dinner tables, Greenberg reveals our damaged relationship with the ocean and its inhabitants. Just three decades ago, nearly everything we ate from the sea was wild. Today, rampant overfishing and an unprecedented biotech revolution have brought us to a point where wild and farmed fish occupy equal parts of a complex marketplace. Four Fish offers a way for us to move toward a future in which healthy and sustainable seafood is the rule rather than the exception. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780143119463
