Juvenile Nonfiction. Science. HTML:A KID??S GUIDE TO THE OCEAN
"Can you imagine a world without fish? It's not as crazy as it sounds. But if we keep doing things the way we've been doing things, fish could become extinct within fifty years. So let's change the way we do things!"
/> World Without Fish is the uniquely illustrated narrative nonfiction account??for kids??of what is happening to the world??s oceans and what they can do about it. Written by Mark Kurlansky, author of Cod, Salt, The Big Oyster, and many other books, World Without Fish has been praised as ??urgent? (Publishers Weekly) and ??a wonderfully fast-paced and engaging primer on the key questions surrounding fish and the sea? (Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish). It has also been included in the New York State Expeditionary Learning English Language Arts Curriculum.
Written by a master storyteller, World Without Fish connects all the dots??biology, economics, evolution, politics, climate, history, culture, food, and nutrition??in a way that kids can really understand. It describes how the fish we most commonly eat, including tuna, salmon, cod, swordfish??even anchovies?? could disappear within fifty years, and the domino effect it would have: the oceans teeming with jellyfish and turning pinkish orange from algal blooms, the seabirds disappearing, then reptiles, then mammals. It describes the back-and-forth dynamic of fishermen, who are the original environmentalists, and scientists, who not that long ago considered fish an endless resource. It explains why fish farming is not the answer??and why sustainable fishing is, and how to help return the oceans to their natural ecological balance.
Interwoven with the book is a twelve-page graphic novel. Each beautifully illustrated chapter opener links to the next to form a larger fictional sto… (mais)

This book is an excellent way for readers to learn what the lasting affects of climate change could be if we don't change now. Imagining a world without fish and other marine creatures and being able to see the loss in the illustrations. Readers will be able to learn more about the science behind climate change and how they can make a difference. ( )

This was a terrific look at the problems we've unleashed on our oceans thanks to a combination of overfishing, climate change, and pollution. It's cataloged as a kid's book, so it's incredibly readable. I sort of think it should be required reading for everyone. The solutions are complex, and Kurlansky does a great job of showing all sides of the story. He points out that fishermen and environmentalists are actually on the same side, here. I took off one star because the lack of footnotes and citations really bothered me. There are so many statistics and facts presented and I could have really used sources. ( )

Oof. Good but grim, this book helps children learn about the complex relationships between ocean species and how humans, as a major ocean predator, affect the entire ecosystem. I appreciate that there are practical steps in the last chapter because I have despair-prone offspring. I mostly find seeking out sustainable fisheries so onerous that I just don't eat seafood, but Kurlansky offers an argument for why this might not be the best solution. ( )

The book A World Without Fish talks about what the environment would be like without fish in our oceans, rivers, streams, and lakes. It discusses a chain reaction that would be created I aquatic life. The book then goes on to discuss the dangers of catching a lot of fish and how scientist and fishermen are at odds on the extension of fish. Pollution is also discussed and how oil, waste, and by-products are killing the aquatic population. They then talk about global warming how that affects the fish as well. This book is really good for middle school students because its informing them about a current need in the planet and how our actions are affecting it. This is good because it educates students on what people are doing wrong and lets them know how they can prevent these things from happening. This would be a great book for a science lesson over pollution or global warming. ( )
