FOUR FISH: The Future of the Last Wild Food , award-winning writer and lifelong angler Paul Greenberg examines our delicate relationship with our last truly wild food source. As large-scale commercial fishing, extensive fish farming, and questionable environmental standards have severely distressed water ecosystems, many wild fish populations are on the brink of extinction. It’s possible that future generations may never eat wild fish.
FOUR FISH explores our relationship with the oceans, honing in on the four varieties of fish that humankind has chosen as our staples—salmon, bass, cod, and tuna. As fish consumption worldwide continues to increase, these varieties are consistently available at markets the world over, even when they aren’t indigenous to nearby waters.
Greenberg’s FOUR FISH is a deeply researched yet utterly charming love letter to the fish he has hunted, studied and eaten throughout his life.
Paul Greenberg’s writing on seafood and the oceans has appeared regularly in the New York TimesMagazine, Book Review, and Opinion Page. A National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellow as well as a W. K. Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Policy Fellow, he lives and works in New York City and Lake Placid, New York.
