Reviews

The Wall Street Journal
"This is Mr. Greenberg's ultimate goal--to get us to eat the seafood from our nation's bounty. He points to the remarkable fact that, "while 91 percent of the seafood Americans eat is foreign, a third of the seafood Americans catch gets sold to foreigners." In addition, he points out, "Americans now harvest our best, most nutritious fish in our best-managed Alaskan fisheries and send those fish over to Asia. In exchange, we are importing fish farmed in Asia, with little of the brain-building compounds fish eaters are seeking when they eat fish."" The Boston Globe
"Greenberg describes a wondrous moment -- in the Bronx, of all places; while in search of reintroduced specimen he stumbles on "a real live, naturally spawned New York City oyster . . . [a] brave sentry from a lost kingdom." Greenberg is at his best describing such epiphanies -- he also writes beautifully about fishing for salmon in Alaska, which offers up similar reveries." The Washington Post
"Americans need to eat more American seafood. It's a point [Greenberg] makes compellingly clear in his new book, American Catch: The Fight for our Local Seafood ." Tom Colicchio:
"This is on the top of my summer reading list: A Fast Food Nation for fish." Kirkus Reviews
"Blue Ocean Institute fellow Greenberg (Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food, 2010, etc.) offers an optimistic perspective on the connection between preserving our salt marshes and restoring America's offshore seafood production. The author presents three illustrative case studies: the effort to bring oysters back to our Eastern shores, the threat to Alaska's wild salmon industry from mining interests, and the effect of globalization on Gulf Coast shrimp. A fascinating discussion of a multifaceted issue and a passionate call to action."
