The Biologist and the Sea: Lessons in Marine-Life Restoration

Fishing With Carl Safina

On a recent three-hour fishing trip, in snippets of windblown conversation while steering his boat, jigging or casting, then fighting, landing and cleaning fish, Dr. Safina reflected on two decades of work revealing the enormous disruption of ocean ecosystems by industrial-scale fishing and other human activities.more

Now 51, he has written three books on the rising human impact on seas once presumed boundless. The first was on fishing, the next on the travels and travails of albatrosses. His latest, “Voyage of the Turtle: In Pursuit of the Earth’s Last Dinosaur” (Henry Holt, 2006), follows the struggles of the ocean’s ancient leatherbacks and other sea turtles.
