About the book:

Rights-based fishing became national policy in 2010 in a push toward conservation, and it controls more than half of the value of American seafood. Aboard fishing vessels from Alaska to Maine, inside restaurants of top chefs, and from the halls of Congress, journalist Lee van der Voo tells the story of people and places left behind in this era of privatization – a story that traces seafood dollars from U.S. docks to Wall Street. The Fish Market (St. Martin’s) is the tale of how the U.S. is privatizing the ocean, the human havoc it has wreaked on the seas, and the people who believe it is all worth it.
