Oceana : our endangered oceans and what we can do to save them by Ted Danson ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 690 libraries worldwide
Most people know Ted Danson from television and movies, but fewer realize that over the course of the past two and a half decades, Danson has tirelessly devoted himself to the cause of heading off a looming global catastrophe--the massive destruction of our planet's oceanic biosystems and the collapse of the world's major commercial fisheries. Here, Danson details his journey from joining a modest local protest in the mid-1980s to his current status as one of the world's most influential oceanic environmental activists, testifying before congressional committees and the World Trade Organization, and helping found Oceana, the largest organization in the world focused solely on ocean conservation. And he describes what has happened to our oceans in just the past half-century, ranging from the ravages of overfishing and habitat destruction to the devastating effects of ocean acidification and the wasteful horrors of fish farms.--From publisher description.

"[This film] charts the devastating ecological impact of overfishing by interweaving both local and global stories of sharply declining fish populations, including the imminent extinction of the bluefin tuna, and illuminates how our modern fishing capacities far outstrip the survival abilities of any ocean species. Scientists explain how this depletion has slipped under the public radar and outline the catastrophic future that awaits us -- an ocean without fish by 2048 -- if we do not adjust our fishing and consumption practices." -- Container.
