In 1741, hungry explorers discovered herds of Steller's sea cow in the Bering Strait, and in less than 30 years, the amiable beast had been harpooned into extinction. It's a classic story, but a key fact is often omitted. Bering Island was the last redoubt of a species that had been decimated by hunting and habitat loss years before the explorers set sail.

    " The book is a major review of of the depopulation of the oceans. The scale and intensity of loss is hard to fathom. This book is a must read. I was particularly shocked by the severity of decline of large fish that use coral reef habitat. "

    " Thorough history of fishing in Europe and America for the past 1000 years. It will probably make you cry, and really care about what type of fish you consume, if you don't already. "

    " They need to make an abridged version of this that is more accessible to the masses. This book is an absolute must read for anyone interested in ocean conservation, marine biology, fishing or fisheries management. "
