World without Fish
by Mark Kurlansky. Illustrated by Frank Stockton. Workman, 2011
Tuna, cod, salmon, swordfish—most of the world’s commercial fish species may disappear in the next 50 years as a result of overfishing, pollution and global warming. Timed to coincide with Earth Day and the one-year anniversary of the Gulf oil spill, this beautifully illustrated children’s book explains how fish came to be so imperiled, how their decline affects other organisms, and what people can do about it.
