oIt is also a splendid example of history illuminating ecology, with well-chosen facts that enable us to picture a largely invisible catastrophe.o uTHE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "As the human population has increased, the marine population has plummeted, and Ellis tells the complex story behind this equation for disaster with a vast array of facts, unfailing eloquence, and bracing frankness." -BOOKLIST "Read this book and be inspired, informed, and entertained, but watch out. The latest, most powerful tribute to the sea by Richard Ellis could forever change the way you think about the ocean, about yourself, and about the future we share with the sea." -SYLVIA EARLE, EXPLORER IN RESIDENCE, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY In The Empty Ocean, acclaimed author and artist Richard Ellis tells the story of our continued plunder of life in the sea and weighs the chances for its recovery. Through fascinating portraits of a wide array of creatures, he introduces us to the many forms of sea life that humans have fished, hunted, and collected over the centuries, from charismatic whales and dolphins to the lowly menhaden, from sea turtles to cod, tuna, and coral.Rich in history, anecdote, and surprising fact, Richard EllisAEs descriptions bring to life the natural history of the various species, the threats they face, and the losses they have suffered. Killing has occurred on a truly stunning scale, with extinction all too often the result, leaving a once-teeming ocean greatly depleted. But the author also finds instances of hope and resilience, of species that have begun to make remarkable comebacks when given the opportunity.Written with passion and grace, and illustrated with RichardEllisAEs own drawings, "The Empty Ocean" brings to a wide audience a compelling view of the damage we have caused to life in the sea and what we can do about it." The Empty Ocean Ellis, Richard, Island Press
