All the Fish in the Sea has won an award! We received an Honorable Mention in the category “Naval and Maritime Science and Technology,” from the North American Society for Ocean History. Here’s what they had to say:
“Extremely important contribution to the literature on maritime science and technology, fisheries, and marine environmental history which has already generated significant buzz in these fields. Does an excellent job critiquing the concept of maximum sustainable yield using a variety of archival and documentary sources…no doubt that this book will become an indispensable resource for both scholars and fishery managers.”
NASOH was founded in 1973 to provide a forum for maritime history and remains actively devoted to the study and promotion of naval and maritime history. The society’s objectives are to promote the exchange of information among its members and others interested in the history of the seas, lakes, and inland waterways; to call attention to books, articles, and documents pertinent to naval and maritime history; and to work with local, regional, national, international, and government organizations toward the goal of fostering a more general awareness and appreciation for North America’s naval and maritime heritage.
John Lyman (1921-1977) was an oceanographer and maritime historian, as well as a founder of NASOH in 1973. Here’s a link to NASOH’s home page:
I’m very grateful to the Society, and to Paul Fontenoy of the North Carolina Maritime Museum, who did all the administrative work, for this marvelous award.
