Swimming in Circles is a searing tale of the bold plan to farm the world's oceans, the story of aquaculture, and the Blue Counter-Revolution. Expanding on the author's year-long study of the shrimp and salmon aquaculture industries as an Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellow, the book lays out the rationale behind aquaculture development: increasing the world food supply and creating jobs in areas hard hit by declining landings in wild fisheries. However, reality is something else entirely: ravaged ecosystems and bankrupted local economies. The author expands on his existing case studies, near his homes in eastern Maine and Sonora, Mexico, and links them to events around the world.
