Drawing on firsthand accounts of early explorers, pirates, merchants, fishers, and travelers, this book recreates the historical scar that marine creatures are harpooned into extinction, which is a classic story, but a key fact is often omitted. It explores the long and colorful history of commercial fishing, taking readers around the world and through five centuries to witness the transformation of the seas from a bounteous ocean in the past to an empty ocean today.

Humanity can make short work of the oceans’ creatures. In 1741, hungry explorers discovered herds of Steller’s sea cow in the Bering Strait, and in less than thirty years, the amiable beast had been harpooned into extinction. It’s a classic story, but a key fact is often omitted. Bering Island was the last redoubt of a species that had been decimated by hunting and habitat loss years before the explorers set sail.
