Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

In this indispensable follow up to his acclaimed The End of the Line: How Overfishing Is Changing the World, Charles Clover chronicles how determined individuals are proving that the crisis in our oceans can be reversed, with benefits for both local communities and entire ecosystems. Rewilding the Sea celebrates what happens when we step aside and let nature repair the damage: whether it is the overfishing of bluefin tuna across the Atlantic, the destruction of coral gardens by dredgers in Lyme Bay or the restoration of oysters on the East Coast of America.

The latest scientific research shows that trawling and dredging create more CO2 than the aviation industry and damage vast areas of our continental shelves, stopping them soaking up carbon. We need to fish in different ways, where we fish at all. We can store carbon and have more fish by stepping aside more often and trusting nature.

Essential and revelatory, Rewilding the Sea propels us to rethink our relationship with nature and reveals that saving our oceans is easier than we think.

Everyone should read this book

Absolutely loved this book. So often our view on the natural world is one of doom and hopelessness (and Rewilding the Sea is not without its severe warnings and shocking stories about the present and future) but this book offers a vision of hope that we should all follow and subscribe too (and press our government to do the same). Very balanced, wonderfully written, and brilliantly narrated.

A must read for anyone with an interest in the sea

This book does a great job of explaining the threats faced by the seas and ways of solving them to people that don’t necessarily know much about them. Lots of anecdotes and case studies from ocean conservation success stories make the reader optimistic about the future of our seas.

Everyone should listen to this

OK first things first, I work in the environment and it is part of my life, this book is perfect for anyone interested not just in climate change but also the natural health of the planet. The oceans are a huge part of how we can fix the issues caused by humans, but they are still being damaged via over fishing and more. I implore everyone to listen to this and understand the importance of what we all need to do.
