FBF: Charles Clover: Saving Our Oceans

Charles Clover transformed the conversation around global fishing and now is now proposing a landmark manifesto for saving our oceans

'Desperately needed' - Isabella Tree

'A game-changer! People are hungry for a plan to reverse ocean death so we can keep breathing! ― Margaret Atwood

In this indispensable follow up to his acclaimed book The End of the Line, Charles Clover chronicles how the crisis in our oceans can be reversed.

Rewilding the Sea celebrates what happens when we step aside and let nature repair the damage: whether it is the overfishing of bluefin tuna across the Atlantic, the destruction of coral gardens by dredgers in Lyme Bay or the restoration of oysters on the East Coast of America.

Essential and revelatory, Rewilding the Sea propels us to rethink our relationship with nature and reveals that saving our oceans is easier than we think.

“What if our seas became productive again…? What if we let the seas soak up carbon from the atmosphere like the peat bogs instead of battering them with trawls and dredges? It's closer than you think. In fact, as Charles Clover explains, rewilding the sea has already begun.” ― George Monbiot

“I doubt any more important book will be published this year. Charles Clover tells an alarming and convincing story, yet it is one that offers hope and a way forward for our beleaguered oceans ... and us.” ― Stephen Fry
