Restoring Four Fish

Restoring Four Fish



Paul Greenberg, Four Fish  (credit: Random House Books)


The food writer and Atlantic fisherman, Paul Greenberg discusses the consequences of over-harvesting four species of marine life. His book Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food details how mass consumption of shrimp, tuna, salmon, and cod have long-term and negative ecological consequences for marine and coastal ecosystems. He writes that if individual consumers make simple changes in their approach to consuming fish, we can still eat well, help depleted fisheries to recover, and the oceans benefit overall from the restoration process.

Greenberg offered his proactive environmental and seafood perspectives in a presentation at a TED conference. The practical approaches to long-term sustainability should be standard practice for sustaining all marine life. WHB
