More Information
The formidable River Cottage team turns their attention to all matters aquatic in this definitive guide to freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and shellfish. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Nick Fisher examine the ecological and moral issues of fishing, teach individual skills such as catching and descaling, and offer a comprehensive (and fascinating) species reference section.

This ambitious reference-cookbook appeals to both intellect and appetite by focusing on the pleasures of catching, cooking, and eating fish while grounding those actions in a philosophy and practice of sustainability. The authors help us understand the human impact on the seafood population, while their infectious enthusiasm for all manner of fish and shellfish?from the mighty salmon to the humble mackerel to the unsung cockle?inspires us to explore different and unfamiliar species.

Reviews:

?A thorough, thoughtful 608-page guide to finding and eating ?good? fish.?
?New York Times Book Review

?Hugh is the person to go to for a properly informed and insightful read on almost any food subject. This fish book is no exception. It is illuminating, original, and utterly delicious, offering a solid background on the matter, including basic techniques and an abundance of original recipes.?
?Yotam Ottolenghi, author of Plenty

?Fearnley-Whittingstall and Fisher?s comprehensive instructions on the mechanics of cleaning and preparing fish are worth the price of the book alone, but their fondness for typically unloved species of fish?mackerel, sea robins, sand dabs, and the like?makes this an indispensible book for any serious piscivore.?
?Hank Shaw, author of Hunt Gather Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast
