Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood

Bloomsbury Publishing USA, 2011年1月15日 - 336 頁
Dividing his sensibilities between Epicureanism and ethics, Taras Grescoe set out on a nine-month, world-wide search for a delicious-and humane-plate of seafood. Along the way, he explains the cultural and commercial implications of fish production on our environment, our health, and our seas. At once entertaining and illuminating, Bottomfeeder is a thoroughly enjoyable narrative about the world's cuisines and an examination of the fishing and farming practices we take too easily for granted.
