Four Fish : The Story of Fishing and What's Left to Eat
People are increasingly interested in where our food comes from, and what impact our consumption has on the natural world, as other books such as Fast Food Nation, Not on the Label and The Omnivore's Dilemma have shown. None have yet focused on the sea, a subject of particular interest in seafood-loving Australia. Greenberg takes four of the world's most consumed fish - bass, tuna, salmon and cod - and uses their plight to explore the issues. From aquaculture to wild fish stocks, fisheries conservation and the real cost of the fish on our plate, Four Fish is a thorough and entertaining examination of the future of seafood.

He lives in New York and his articles and opinion pieces on wild fisheries and aquaculture have been published in The New York Times, GQ and The Boston Globe. His research into fisheries conservation has taken him all over the world, including to the Falkland and Shetland islands, Siberia's Lake Baikal, Patagonia and Scandinavia.
