This is an interesting, and very readable study of the problems that have caused major declines within the New England groundfishing industry, and how 2 seperate, but equally interested parties can view a subject so differently. It presents the case in a middle of the road view and throws the blame for the problem at both groups. If you ever wondered why the price of fish has become prohibitive, or how a major eco-system can be destroted while everyone talks, this is a book well worth reading. It is written in language that non-scientitsts can understand and enjoy.

This book is a wonderful insight into the trials and tribulations that take place for Fisherman and those who have to regulate the Fisheries in New England. It is well written and quite intertaining which can be quite an achievement for a book based in Science. As a person who has sailed aboard the vessels written about in the book, Mr. Dobbs representation of the ships is very well done and he captures the essence of being at sea quite well. I feel the book is quite critical of the National Marine Fisheries Service towards the end, but I think it is constructive, honest criticism which I hope the Service and NOAA took to heart since the book was written. Please read if you have any interest in New England, Fish, or Science.
