Mark Kurlansky: World Without Fish

Mon, May 2 2011 - 7:00pm

Mark Kurlansky

Author, Cod, Salt and The World Without Fish

Alison van Diggelen, Host, Fresh Dialogues - Moderator

Former commercial fisherman and best-selling author Kurlansky examines the devastating effects of industrialized fishing and shares simple rules that families can use to help support sustainable fishing. In his new children’s book, he depicts what’s happening to the fish we commonly eat – tuna, salmon, cod and swordfish – and the domino effect it would have if it all disappeared in the next 50 years. Kurlansky will also be joined by his 10-year-old daughter and fishing companion, Talia.
