Looking throughout politics, economics, and biology, All the Boats at the Ocean casts a large internet to bare how the subsidy-driven growth of fisheries within the Pacific throughout the chilly warfare resulted in the expansion of fisheries technology and the construction of foreign fisheries administration. however, the seas are faraway from calm: in an international the place this technologically complicated has enabled countries to colonize the oceans, fish actually don't have any position left to conceal, and the way forward for the seas and their fish shares is uncertain.
