I was a big fan of "Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food," Paul Greenberg's 2010 book about sustainabilty. Now he's back with "American Catch" (Penguin, $26.95), a cogent exploration of our irrational approach to fish: We import farmed salmon from Chile while exporting wild Alaskan salmon to Japan; we import farmed shrimp from Asia while destroying the Gulf of Mexico's wild shrimp habitat (and its shrimping industry). And don't get Greenberg started on New York City's oysters, once world famous, now illegal to consume.(Credit: The Penguin Press)
