Market demand for seafood now far exceeds the ocean's ability to keep pace…and the crisis is deepening. Worldwide, most marine fisheries are either fully exploited or in sharp decline. With stunning visuals and compelling narration, Farming the Seas journeys around the world documenting the most important stories as they unfold: some resulting in a net loss of marine resources and environmental degradation while others are innovating practices that offer solutions to this looming crisis. From the indigenous tribes of British Columbia to the large-scale operations of multinational corporations, from Mediterranean fishermen to Thai shrimp farmers, Farming the Seas gathers perspectives from around the globe as it examines the problems and the promises of this emerging industry. A sequel to Empty Oceans, Empty Nets.
