From saving the whales of the Antarctic to studying the salmon of Alaska, Casson Trenor has worked to support stewardship of our marine resources in all five oceans and countless seas. Named both a "Time" magazine Environmental Hero and an Ocean Protection Hero by Save Our Shores, Trenor has extensive experience and expertise. He has stalked the fetid warehouses of Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, spent two months journeying by ship along the Antarctic coast, berthed on leaking wrecks off Central Pacific islands, and gone octopus fishing with holy men on the Island of Yap. In thousands of conversations with fishermen around the world, he has heard one statement repeated: "The fish are gone." In his recent book "The Whale Warriors," author Peter Heller, a contributing editor to "National Geographic Adventure" and "Outside" magazines, captures Trenor's dedication to ocean conservation through his efforts to end illegal whaling. Trenor is a main character in Heller's factual account of the exploits of one small, rusty ship determined to take on the entire Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean in 2005 and 2006. Born in Seattle and living in San Francisco, Trenor speaks five languages, has traveled to over forty countries, and holds an MA in International Environmental Policy from the prestigious Monterey Institute of International Studies.
"For any seafood lover who desires to get closer to food while doing the right thing, this book is a gem."--Trevor Corson, author of the best-selling "The Story of Sushi" "At 110 pages, this book is a more in-depth look at 39 species found on sushi menus. Trenor includes information on such crucial issues as mercury levels, dredging, and crowded fish farms. The species are color-coded so that you can tell from just a glance whether it's sustainable, unsustainable, or one that you should proceed with caution about. It's a must-read for any sushi aficionado."--FoodGal.com "So, for those of you who love sushi as much I do, but don't know which fish are safe or sustainable to eat, "Sustainable Sushi" proves to be quite a handy guide. I'll definitely be taking it with me the next time I dine out for sushi, it's a keeper!"--"The Alternative Consumer" ""Sustainable Sushi" formats an ocean's worth of information into a manageable handbook, and diners who carry it will hold the power to order wisely, enjoy a guilt-free meal, and help assure that sushi is not just a short-lived pleasure of the present, but a sustainable industry of the future."--"Santa Barbara Independent" "[Casson Trenor] is a sustainability expert who offers clear insights perfect for seafood enthusiasts."--"The Midwest Book Review" "[Trenor's] "Sustainable Sushi" is full of hard fishery facts and undeniable science...but Trenor wisely knows that it's not just the facts that will change minds. Gorgeous illustrations of each fish and clear photos of exquisite sushi dishes will surely convince readers that seafood like the relatively abundant Northwestern geoduck is as tasty as and more sustainable than the scarce Caribbean conch. Most of us want to do the right thing, but few are willing to sacrifice gustatory pleasure doing it. "Sustainable Sushi" shows that it is possible to eat right--and well."--"Edible Los Angeles " "This is an interestin "So, for those of you who love sushi as much I do, but don't know which fish are safe or sustainable to eat, "Sustainable Sushi" proves to be quite a handy guide.
