Professor W. Jeffrey Bolster will speak about his book, “The Mortal Sea: Fishing the Atlantic in the Age of Sail.” Since the time of the Vikings, the Atlantic has shaped the lives of people who depend on it for survival and those people have shaped the Atlantic. In his account of this interdependency, Bolster, a historian and professional seafarer, takes attendees through a millennia-long environmental history of our impact on one of the world’s largest ecosystems.
