About this item

Most people know Ted Danson as the affable bartender Sam Malone in the long-running

television series Cheers. But fewer realize that over the course of the past two and a half

decades, Danson has tirelessly devoted himself to the cause of heading off a looming global

catastrophethe massive destruction of our planets oceanic biosystems and the complete

collapse of the worlds major commercial fisheries.

In Oceana, Danson details his journey from joining a modest local protest in the mid-

1980s to oppose offshore oil drilling near his Southern California neighborhood to his current

status as one of the worlds most influential oceanic environmental activists, testifying before

congressional committees in Washington, D.C., addressing the World Trade Organization in

Zurich, Switzerland, and helping found Oceana, the largest organization in the world focused

solely on ocean conservation.

In his incisive, conversational voice, Danson describes what has happened to our oceans in

just the past half-century, ranging from the ravages of overfishing and habitat destruction to the

devastating effects of ocean acidification and the wasteful horrors of fish farms. Danson also

shares the stage of Oceana with some of the worlds most respected authorities in the fields

of marine science, commercial fishing, and environmental law, as well as with other influential


Combining vivid, personal prose with an array of stunning graphics, charts, and photographs,

Oceana powerfully illustrates the impending crises and offers solutions that may allow us

to avert them, showing you the specific courses of action you can take to become active,

responsible stewards of our planets most precious resourceits oceans.
