Philosopher Fish: Sturgeon, Caviar and the Geography of Desire
Richard Adams Carey (au)
A captivating chronicle of a fast-disappearing fish -- & of the people whose lives & livelihoods depend on it. Since the days of the Persian Empire, caviar has meant status, wealth, prestige, & sex appeal. Today it sells for up to $100 an ounce, & aficionados will go to extraordinary lengths to get their fill of it. Thatís just the problem. Here, Carey immerses himself in the world of sturgeon, the fish that lays these golden eggs. Ancient, shrouded in mystery, inexplicable in several of its behaviors, the sturgeon has a fascinating biologic past -- & a very uncertain future. Sturgeon populations worldwide have declined 70% in the last 20 years, most drastically in the Caspian Sea, & the beluga sturgeon, producer of the most coveted caviar, is an endangered species.
