KIRKUS REVIEW

The authors of The Ocean River (reported in the June 1, 1952 Bulletin, p. 337) again turn their thoughts seaward, this time with the intention of seeking out the potential of the sea in terms of food, energy, and minerals for man. They consider the resources of the Leviathan and the possibilites of mining the ocean reservoir: the using of the vast pasturage of plankton; the transplanting of fish and the removal of wasteful feeders; the setting up of pond cultures where the intermediate steps between plankton and carnivorous fish are eliminated, thus keeping more food tonnage; the plans to harness the tides as at Passamaquoddy and Severn; the minerals that might be reached. Closely allied to other books which concern the lowering of food and fuel resources in a world with a runaway human birth rate, this brings to the public a further view on the problem. The most recent, the Harrison Brown Book- The Challenge of Man's Future (see p. 92, February 1, 1954 Bulletin) -- may lead readers to this less extensive study.
