"Just when opting for omega-3-rich seafood is being recognized as one of the healthiest dietary choices a person can make, the news seems to be full of stories about mercury-laden tuna, shrimp contaminated with antibiotics, and diminishing fish stocks. In a world of endangered cod, pirate-caught Chilean sea bass, and sea-lice-infested salmon, can we really continue to order the catch of the day in good conscience? Is it still even good for us? Bottomfeeder is the story of a seafood lover's round-the-world quest for a truly decent meal. From a strip-mall Red Lobster to the rotary-sushi bars of Tokyo, Taras Grescoe travels to the end of the seafood supply chain and back. What he discovers is shocking: how out-of-control pollution, unregulated fishing practices, and climate change are affecting the fish that end up on our plate."--BOOK JACKET.Grescoe, Taras is the author of 'Bottomfeeder', published 2008 under ISBN 9781596912250 and ISBN 1596912251.
