Yesterday's Ocean
A History of Marine Life on California's Central Coast

Marc Shargel

This concise history of the marine abundance of the central California coast looks back in time to draw a vivid portrait of a marvelous abundance of marine life, of which only a pale shadow exists today. Filled with amazing photos of marine diversity both historic and present, the story of these depleted resources focuses on sea otters, abalone, rockfish, salmon, sardines, and sharks to show how impacts of harvesting one species affects surrounding species.
