It's no revelation that the world's oceans have been overfished.

Callum Roberts documents the extent, duration and effects of the problem in The Unnatural History of the Sea, winner of the 2008 Society of Environmental Journalists' Rachel Carson Environment Book Award. The book tells a saga of technological advances that have allowed the plundering of the world's fisheries to accelerate.
