This book explores the politics of fishing in the vast ocean. Who owns the water why and to what extent. It chronicles pirates lives (not so glamourous), sea patrol, chefs, activists, and a dash of courtroom drama. The main event is an Australian ship pursuing pirates into the Arctic ocean. The book is a call to action in favor of sea regulation and conservation. It does show a bit of sympathy for the fisherman who sees poaching as a birthright. But, when I think about the lose of whales that made me sad. Creatures of the sea are meant to be a diverse group doing their quiet existence. A good person may go the manager of any restaurant they patron and demand to know "What migrant workers slaved for this?" "What sea population dies for my pleasure?" Accountability can be a tedious chore.
