Danson alsoshares the stage of Oceana with some of the world’s most respected authorities in the fieldsof marine science, commercial fishing, and environmental law, as well as with other influentialactivists.Combining vivid, personal prose with an array of stunning graphics, charts, and photographs,Oceana powerfully illustrates the impending crises and offers solutions that may allow usto avert them, showing you the specific courses of action you can take to become active,responsible stewards of our planet’s most precious resource—its oceans.
