Summary, etc.:
"'What fish should I eat that's good for me and good for the planet?' That's the question bestselling author and lifelong fisherman Paul Greenberg (Four Fish; American Catch) sets out to answer in The Fish On My Plate. As part of his quest to investigate the health of the ocean--and his own--Greenberg spends a year eating seafood at breakfast, lunch and dinner, eating over 700 fish meals in hopes of improving his health through a dramatic increase in his omega-3 levels. With people worldwide consuming more seafood than ever, Greenberg also explores questions of sustainability and overfishing, traveling to Norway, where modern fish farming was invented; Peru to witness the world's largest wild fishery; Alaska, where 200 million salmon can be caught each year; and Connecticut, to visit a sustainable ocean farming pioneer who is trying to transform the fishing industry. The Fish On My Plate isn't just the story of one man's journey. It's a must-watch documentary for any consumer who cares about both his or her own health and the health of the planet"--Container.
