Be introduced to a new anti-hero.
Author: Ed Robinson
Be introduced to a new anti-hero. Meade Breeze lives on the far outskirts of society with no visible means of support. He survives on his wits and a meager income derived from selling home-grown dope to suburban housewives and home-brewed rum to bums in the park. He's also on the run from his past misdeeds. He fears it will all catch up with him someday, so he stays on the move aboard his classic trawler. Explore the Gulf Coast Islands, Florida Keys, and the Bahamas with Breeze, but keep one eye over your shoulder. His mission to return his dead wife's ashes to their special place seems hopeless. He's going nowhere fast until a chance encounter with a lover from his past changes his luck . . . or does it?

This is not a cruising guide. It is not a travelogue. Nor is it a how-to-fix-an-old-boat book. This is a live aboard lifestyle book. It describes what it is truly like to live on an old boat, warts and all. Our adventures were made more enjoyable, and sometimes more hilarious, by the addition of cats and large dogs. You just can't make this stuff up. Our book hides nothing. It will tell you of the highs and lows, the good times and the bad, the joy and the terror, and the wonder and the boredom of living aboard. It will describe the many boat projects undertaken to make Drift Away seaworthy once again. It will relate the costs involved, and the pitfalls we experienced. If we could do it, so can you.

In Asia, the fisheries sector is important in terms of food security, livelihoods and foreign exchange earnings. However, as in many parts of the world, there are signs that capture fisheries are fully exploited or overfished. Management of fisheries in the region is often hampered by lack of information on the status of fisheries in terms of biological, social, economic, policy and governance aspects. This regional project documents an alarming decline on coastal fishery resources, based on historic research surveys in South and Southeast Asia. Socio-economic analyses and policy reviews highlight the importance of the fisheries sector but also the challenges facing it. Potential interventions to improve fisheries management in the countries are outlined and defined with environmental, socioeconomic and institutional objectives.

A fascinating journey with the sea creature that has captured human imagination for thousands of years Poseidon's Steed trails the seahorse through secluded waters across the globe in a kaleidoscopic history that mirrors man's centuries-old fascination with the animal, sweeping from the reefs of Indonesia, through the back streets of Hong Kong, and back in time to ancient Greece and Rome. Over time, seahorses have surfaced in some unlikely places. We see them immortalized in the decorative arts; in tribal folklore, literature, and ancient myth; and even on the pages of the earliest medical texts, prescribed to treat everything from skin complaints to baldness to flagging libido. Marine biologist Helen Scales eloquently shows that seahorses are indeed fish, though scientists have long puzzled over their exotic anatomy, and their very strange sex lives — male seahorses are the only males in the animal world that experience childbirth! Our first seahorse imaginings appeared six thousand years ago on cave walls in Australia. The ancient Greeks called the seahorse hippocampus (half-horse, half-fish) and sent it galloping through the oceans of mythology, pulling the sea god Poseidon's golden chariot. The seahorse has even been the center of a modern-day international art scandal: A two-thousand-year-old winged seahorse brooch was plundered by Turkish tomb raiders and sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. A book that is as charming as the seahorse itself, Poseidon's Steed brings to life an aquatic treasure. Seahorses lead quiet lives, tucked away out of sight on the seafloor. It is rare to catch a glimpse of a seahorse in its natural habitat. But even if few have seen one live, these exotic, seemingly prehistoric creatures exist quite vividly in our imaginations and they have mesmerized scientists, artists, and storytellers throughout time with their otherworldly rarity. Poseidon's Steed is a sweeping journey that takes us from the coral reefs and seagrass meadows of Indonesia where many seahorses makes their natural habitat to the back streets of Hong Kong where a thriving black market seahorse trade is concealed. Throughout history, seahorses have surfaced in some unexpected places and Scales also follows the seahorse back in time, from our most rudimentary seahorse imaginings six thousand years ago on cave walls in Australia, to the myths of ancient Greece. Scientists have long puzzled over seahorses' unusual anatomy and their very strange sex lives. And male seahorses are the only males in the animal world that experience childbirth! Seahorses are not what scientists call a "keystone" species. They rely on a healthy ocean to survive, but the marine ecosystem does not rely on them. But their delicate beauty reminds us that we rely on the seas not only to fill our dinner plates, but also to feed our imaginations.
For Meade Breeze, returning to the place he considers home could prove dangerous-especially now that unscrupulous developers are destroying the once pristine Cayo Costa.

For Meade Breeze, returning to the place he considers home could prove dangerous-especially now that unscrupulous developers are destroying the once pristine Cayo Costa. Breeze has been through this before. Little can stop greedy men from robbing resources from the many to sell to the wealthy few. They tried it in the Glades and on Captiva Island, as well as many other far-flung locations-but Breeze was always one step ahead. Living completely off the grid has its advantages. It makes a person invisible to all but a select few. When heavy equipment ends up mired in saltwater and a construction dock is destroyed, Breeze becomes the number one suspect. But where is he? Who is he? Grainy security photos only show a maniac at the controls of the heavy equipment, wearing a dark hoodie and mask-it could be anyone.With the local sheriff gunning for him and the U.S. Marshals Service trying to keep him under wraps, Breeze soon learns that being invisible isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is squatting in an empty second home. The holiday season is fast approaching, but he refuses to budge. Huck grew up here, but he can't afford to live here and his life is spiralling out of control. As Booby's Bay fills up for the annual surfing competition, Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one is listening. He's got media connections and intends to make a political stand. Inspired by the housing crisis and the reality of life on the North Cornish coast, Booby's Bay is a passionate, comic fable about the lengths one man will have to go to have his voice heard.

The remarkably rich natural environment of Malaysia attracts the interest of both industry and the environmental community. Managing Natural Wealth analyzes major natural resource and environmental policy issues in the country during the 1970s and 1980s-a period of profound socioeconomic change, rapid depletion of natural resources, and the emergence of serious problems with pollution. Managing Natural Wealth is an important up-date to Environment and Development in a Resource-Rich Economy: Malaysia under the New Economic Policy. First published in hardcover in 1997, this pathbreaking book emphasized economics as a source for analyzing the issues involved in environmental and natural resource management in developing countries. The access that Jeffrey Vincent and Rozali Mohamed Ali and the contributing authors had to unpublished data and key decisionmakers made their account an essential reference for policymakers and researchers in Malaysia and throughout the globe. Managing Natural Wealth includes a review of key developments since the 1990s by S. Robert Aiken and Colin H. Leigh, two geographers with a long-standing interest in environmental change in Malaysia and an understanding of the institutional context of its environmental policy that is unmatched in the scholarly community.

Splash with the Stickmen at the sea's surface, and then dive down through the darkening zones and into the abyss. But don't stop there! Follow the Stickmen to snorkel around coral gardens, find creatures that make their own light, and dive 7 miles down to the deepest trench. The Stickmen have plenty of oxygen (and wild facts) to keep you alert as you float past coral gardens, pods of humpback whales, robotic submarines, and the weirdest creatures of the deep.

In every coastal town in Australia, there's a bait shop and a boat ramp, and, in garages around the country, fishing rods are strung up waiting for their next outing. Many of us have a special fishing spot, and families pass on tips from generation to generation and exchange fishy tales of amazing catches and near misses. Bringing her personal passion for throwing in a line, author Anna Clark celebrates the enduring pleasure of fishing in "The Catch: The Story of Fishing in Australia". This book charts the history of fishing, from the first known accounts of Indigenous fishing and early European encounters with Australia's waters to the latest fishing fads; from the introduction of trout and fly fishing to the challenges of balancing needs of commercial and recreational fishers. Fishing personality Rob Paxevanos, host of "Fishing Australia", says that "The Catch" is 'by far my best fishing read to date'.
