    Our relationship with the ocean is undergoing a profound transformation. Just three decades ago nearly everything we ate from the sea was wild. Today rampant overfishing and an unprecedented biotech revolution have brought us to a point where wild and farmed fish occupy equal parts of a complex and confusing marketplace.

    Overall

    This is a fascinating book, however the audio version is compromised by the narrator's annoying mannerism of reading direct quotes "in character", including accents. In other words, if a French person is talking the narrator will read with a French accent etc. This seemed pretty condescending and strange to me for a non-fiction book (how does the narrator know what these people sound like?) and was so distracting that I stopped listening.
