More Description

Ichthyologist Waldman traces the fate of the harbor from the 17th century, when it teemed with fish, porpoises, and whales through the rich oyster bed in the early 19th century to today's pollution and annual April warming that energizes bacteria to float the year's murders and suicides to the water's surface. He includes many old and new photographs.
