A NATURALIST GOES FISHING: Casting in Fragile Waters from the Gulf of Mexico to New Zealand's South Island
by James McClintock
Personal and professional lives come together for McClintock… an Antarctic marine biologist and passionate sport fisherman. The author is especially worried about the growing threat to fish posed by the increased acidification of the world's oceans, caused by the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere…He has personally witnessed the effects of dredging, coupled with pollution and the impact of global warming, all of which are depleting the number of fish and reducing their size. Nonetheless, McClintock writes with relish about his adventures as a sport fisherman… His accounts of… fishing adventures — in the Gulf of Mexico, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and more — provide a lively backdrop for concerns about the effects of climate change.
