Product Description

In the face of apocalyptic climate change, a former fisherman shares a Green New Deal of his own, and a bold and hopeful vision for the future: farming the ocean.

In Eat Like a Fish, Bren Smith--a restorative ocean farmer--introduces the world of sea-based agriculture, a groundbreaking solution to the global climate crisis.

The ocean is a vast, untapped opportunity, home to thousands of edible plants. Using simple DIY techniques, we can grow more than enough delicious and nutritious food--without the use of pesticides--to feed the planet and filter pollutants from seawater, to boot.

A groundbreaking "climate memoir," Eat Like a Fish interweaves Smith's own story--from sailing the high seas aboard commercial fishing trawlers to pioneering new forms of ocean farming to surfing the frontiers of the food movement--with actionable food policy and practical advice on ocean farming.

It is a bold yet hopeful story of environmental renewal, and a must-read guide to cleaning the oceans, feeding the world, and--by creating new jobs up and down the coasts--putting working class Americans back to work.
