Abstract: "More fishing boats harvest the world's oceans than at any time in history. But their best catch is seven years gone. Besieged by exploding demand, beset by overfishing, devastated by destruction of life-giving coastal wetlands, the world's oceans have reached their limit. Drastic measures might turn the tide. Anything less, and the fishing way of life that is so much a part of south Louisiana almost certainly will not survive."
