Just finished reading Cod by Mark Kurlansky as suggested by one of our customers, Camille.

Cod is a history of cod fishing and its impact on economies, people and, of course, the cod itself. As I read the book, I was impressed how the story of cod fishing is similar to that of farming. In both cases,  advances in technology after World War Two caused dramatic changes in the economics of scale, manpower required and balance in the environment.

As is often the case, our technology outstripped our ethics and foresight.
