Paul Greenberg sent me this week-end the link to his spectacular feature story "Tuna's end" published by The New Yor Times Magazine.
It's a story about a multi-faceted disaster which combines an environmental tragedy, a looming food security crisis, a development fiasco, a governance failure, a trade-environment conflict, and of course also a very sad culinary loss.
When he was preparing his story, Paul called me and we had a fairly long conversation with me about several aspects of the issues he was looking into. I look forward to reading his book "Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food” when it comes out. It would perhaps be useful if that was before the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, in Nagoya, Japan in the month of October.
