Farming the Sea, by A KcKee

Farming the Sea
by Alexander McKee

Alexander McKee, diver and military historian, is widely known as the man who lead the team of amateur divers (one of whom was John Bevan) in the discovery of the wreck of Henry VII’s flagship, Mary Rose. John’s admiration and respect for ‘Mac’ (as McKee was known by his friends) is reflected in his comprehensive collection of McKee’s books. This is one from John’s private collection.

Farming the Sea describes the exploitation of all undersea resources from fish to minerals, tools and techniques, underwater habitats and vehicles. McKee explores the far-reaching possibilities of sea-farming in terms of feeding populations, commercial enterprises and the potentially damaging effects on the fishing industry.
