Seafood of Southeast Asia

by: Alan Davidson

Berkeley CA: Ten Speed Press 2003, Paperback

Reviewed by: Jacqueline M. Newman

Regenerate your love for and knowledge of these healthy underwater creatures. Davidson writes with wit and expresses his outstanding piscatorial scholarship. In that, he was among the world's best. Would that he were still alive to answer question we have posed and still have.
