The authors authoritatively establish that the albatross's fate is linked to the fate of two of the highest value table food, Bluefin Tuna and Patagonian Toothfish, which are threatened by unregulated commercial harvesting. Commercial fishing techniques are annually killing tens of thousands of albatrosses and because of their breeding biology they are unable to replenish their numbers at the rate they are being depleted.

This extensively researched, readable book tells the story of a potentially catastrophic extinction that has been interrupted by an unlikely alliance of governments, conservation groups and fishermen.
