World Without Fish

Written by Mark Kurlansky

World Without Fish is a highly readable scientifc primer about the sustainability of marine life and the ecological consequences that will occur if the oceans become unsuitable for life.  Citing Charles Darwin and The Origin of Species,  Kurlansky demonstrates how conditions that lead to the breakdown of biodiversity can ultimately lead to the extinction of humans.  Tht illustrations by Frank Stockton punctuate the message.  The book is intended for readers 9 years and up.  The prose is easy reading but the message is powerful.  World Without Fish should be in every grade and high school library.  For those already versed in environmental issues, it is a concise and thorough reminder of the future we face if mankind does not take appropriate action now.a
