Fish, Justice, and Society is an in-depth look into the fishing industry, fish, and aquatic environments. This book delves past the façade of what may be known by the average fisherman, bringing to the surface new information about numerous species and aquatic habitats. It is the most comprehensive book on the subject of fish, law, and human behavior. It is a standalone work, but complements Cusack’s Fish in the Bible (2017). It is a treatise on the subject of animal law while also serving the common fisherman information on compliance issues.

"Cusack has made an important analytical and prescriptive contribution to the cause of environmental and social justice. […. Fish, Justice and Society is] a huge success with its fine-grained analysis of the connections between fish and human civilization." - Oyebade Kunle Oyerinde, Clark Atlanta University, in: African and Asian Studies 17 (2018)
Fish, Justice, and Society is a must-read for anyone who wants to know about underwater creatures, coasts, and aquaculture.
