End of the Line
I've been reading The End of the Line by Charles Clover, about the problem of overfishing. It was made into a movie last year. It's nothing many of us who work on ocean issues don't know already; nevertheless, it provides some information I had never heard before (especially information about historical fish catches), and provides a useful overview of the state of the world's oceans and how they got that way. Highly recommended. There is a great collection of videos related to the movie up at Babelgum, like this one about MPAs. Since Netflix doesn't have the DVD of the documentary yet, you can check these out in the meantime!
