About this title
When commercial overfishing sent striped bass
populations into free fall in the 1980s, Dick Russell
emerged as a key spokesman in a long-shot crusade
by dedicated fishermen to save them. Striper Wars is
Russell’s vibrant account of their thrilling, yet tenuous
victory, complete with heroes and villains. In one
of nature’s great comebacks, groundbreaking moratoriums
allowed the striper population to rebound
more than tenfold. Yet today, the striper faces new
threats, including a deadly bacterial disease. While
perils persist, Dick Russell’s inspiring account offers fundamental lessons
about the power of civic action and the necessity of a holistic
approach to conservation.
Dick Russell, a longtime environmental journalist, is the author of The Man Who Knew Too Much (Carroll & Graf, 2003), Black Genius: And the American Experience (Carroll & Graf, 1999), and Eye of the Whale (Island Press, 2004). He divides his time between Los Angeles and Boston.
