The Last Ocean: Antarctica's Ross Sea Project by John Weller

This is a stunning collection of oceanic photography documenting the world’s last pristine ocean. Due to its remoteness and harsh weather, Antarctica’s Ross Sea remained free from human interference until 1996, when commercial fishers discovered it. Now that fishery removes 3,000 tons of fish annually, threatening to destroy the world’s last intact ecosystem. Offering a rare glimpse into life at the edge of the world—from emperor and Adélie penguins to silverfish, seals, and minke whales—Weller takes the reader on an unprecedented journey above and below the ocean surface.
