Sloan’s story features the accounts of international meetings of government delegations, lobbyists, special interest groups, and nongovernmental environmental organizations, along with other fisheries groups. The book will appeal to the large number of people who are concerned about the health of our oceans, and ultimately, the health of our planet.
