From the Publisher

When James Prosek was just fifteen, a ranger named Joe Haines caught him fishing without a permit in a stream near Prosek's home in Connecticut. But instead of taking off with his fishing buddy, James put down his rod and surrendered. It was a move that would change his life forever. Expecting a small fine and a lecture, James instead received enough knowledge about fishing and the great outdoors to last a lifetime.

The story of an unlikely friendship, Joe and Me is a book for those who remember the mentor in their life, the one who changed the way they look at the world.

For the first time, scientists have calculated the size and value of this overlooked industry. They estimate 121,000 tons of worms—worth nearly £6 billion (or about $7.5 billion in U.S. dollars)—are used for bait each year worldwide, most of these dug out of beaches and tidal flats. For comparison, that’s more than three times the annual revenue generated by the U.S. sushi industry. The estimate is especially impressive since it pertains to the use of various types of mar

The Benefits of Protecting the Oceans

Most people will never glimpse the vast underwater mountains and canyons off Massachusetts’ Cape Cod that President Obama designated as a national monument on Sept. 15. The same goes for the hundreds of thousands of submerged square miles that the U.K., Ecuador, Costa Rica, and other countries have just protected, as well as the half-million square miles near Hawaii that Obama recently set aside. But everyone benefits when underwater tracts are put off limits to commercial fishing and mining, because doing so is one of the best ways to help marine life flourish. It’s not just humans who profi

Fishy Business

THE OLD ADAGE is no longer true: There are not plenty of fish in the sea. According to a recent study of ocean stocks, 68 percent of wild fisheries are being harvested at unsustainable rates—though the decline may actually be worse, as the authors noted a paucity of data from the developing world. Researchers from the Nature Conservancy Australia are adapting human face-recognition technology to combat the problem. Their project, dubbed FishFace, involves using a camera to snap a photo of a catch on, say, a vessel’s deck. Computer software then automatically analyzes the image to identify the
