The Death and Life of Monterey Bay, A Story of Revival

Creator: Stephen R Palumbi, Carolyn Sotka | Nature - 2011-01-26

The shores of Monterey Bay revived because of human passion—passion that enlivens every page of this hopeful book.

Publisher: Island Press

About this book
Anyone who has ever stood on the shores of Monterey Bay, watching the rolling ocean waves and frolicking otters, knows it is a unique place. But even residents on this idyllic California coast may not realize its full history. Monterey began as a natural paradise, but became the poster child for industrial devastation in John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row,and is now one of the most celebrated shorelines in the world.   It is a remarkable story of life, death, and revival—told here for the first time in all its stunning color and bleak grays. The Death and Life of Monterey Bay begins in the eighteenth century when Spanish and French explorers encountered a rocky shoreline brimming with life—raucous sea birds, abundant sea otters, barking sea lions, halibut the size of wagon wheels,waters thick with whales. A century and a half later, many of the sea creatures had disappeared, replaced by sardine canneries that sickened residents with their stench but kept the money flowing. When the fish ran out and the climate turned,the factories emptied and the community crumbled. But today,both Monterey’s economy and wildlife are resplendent. How did it happen?   The answer is deceptively simple: through the extraordinary acts of ordinary people. The Death and Life of Monterey Bay is the biography of a place, but also of the residents who reclaimed it. Monterey is thriving because of an eccentric mayor who wasn’t afraid to use pistols, axes, or the force of law to protect her coasts. It is because of fishermen who love their livelihood, scientists who are fascinated by the sea’s mysteries, and philanthropists and community leaders willing to invest in a world-class aquarium. The shores of Monterey Bay revived because of human passion—passion that enlivens every page of this hopeful book.

About this book
Monterey, California conjures images of a coastal city rimmed by crystal clear waters and bolstered by tourism; yet these edenic views belie the community's often turbulent history, originating with the Native Americans who lived here for a millennium and Hispanic exploration and colonization. At each stage in the growth of this city, residents have successfully overcome the division of multiple rule, diverse nationalities, and fledgling identities to fashion a homeland in the western landscape of America that is deservingly proud of its character and history.

Monterey's Waterfront

Creator: Tim Thomas, Dennis Copeland | History - 2006

On Monterey's waterfront the words sardine, salmon, mackerel, pompano, albacore, abalone, flounder, and squid were music to the ears of fishermen.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
On Monterey's waterfront the words sardine, salmon, mackerel, pompano, albacore, abalone, flounder, and squid were music to the ears of fishermen. With its deep underwater canyon, Monterey Bay hosted a sealife jamboree long before the native Rumsien set out in small tule boats to harvest its bounty. It has sounded a siren call to fishermen and biologists ever since. Chinese fishermen pioneered modern commercial fishing in the 1850s, clustering in villages along Monterey's rugged coast. The cry "Baleia!" sounded through town, summoning Portuguese whalers to their longboats. Japanese divers in primitive hard-hat gear brought a sea snail called abalone to national attention, while Sicilians earned Monterey the title "sardine capital of the world." The railroad opened the way for visitors to discover this natural coastal paradise, now a tourist mecca.

Biological Insecticide for Worms & Caterpillars 1qt (Lawn & Patio) Using this every day as gypsy moth created major devastation in our area last year. We now are spraying before they emerge and hopefully will stop this devastation. More nests here this year than last and that was horrible.

    Great product, work really well

    5/5 Alika Crooks - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Monterey B.T. Biological Insecticide for Worms & Caterpillars 1qt (Lawn & Patio) This product is amazing! Caterpillars killed almost immediately with no damage to my plants, and not harmful to humans. This year, I have been using this in conjuction with another Monterey product call Garden Insect spray and with the two products together, my garden has remained mostly pest free. The BT you can use regularly at first sign of caterpillars to keep them from growing large and causing significant damage to your plants. I highly recommend this product.

    No more doilies!!!!

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Monterey B.T. Biological Insecticide for Worms & Caterpillars 1qt (Lawn & Patio) Product is wonderful!!! When I first noticed petunias looking like doilies, wish this were the first product I used. Within a few days I could see a difference. Didn't discolor leaves, able to reapply within a week without damage. Wasted so much money, time and effort with other products, which resulted in major re-infestation within 3 to 4 days.

    May have found a cure for Iridium Mites!

    5/5 Tony Thiel (Kauai, Hawaii) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Monterey Once a Year Insect Control, 1-Quart (Lawn & Patio) Seems to work quite well. I have an orangy (for lack of better description) hibiscus, and it gets attack by something called "Iridium mites" where the leaves looks like it's got puck marks all over it. I've been fighting this disease for 10 years and when I saw this Monterey Insect control, I thought that I might give it a try.It's been a couple of months now and NO iridium mites! Could it be that this thing works?I also have other plants that gets attacked by Chinese/Japanese beetles, and this seems to work for them as well. My suggested use is for NON EDIBLE plants. Please use it for ornamental plants only as it IS a SYSTEMIC chemical. Wouldn't want it inside my bod!

    5/5 Katie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Monterey Once a Year Insect Control, 1-Quart (Lawn & Patio) I don't do a lot of reviews, but this product deserves one. We had severe bark scale on our crepe myrtle, and I was starting to worry we'd have to cut the tree way back to save it. Local companies wanted several hundreds of dollars for treatment. I used a pressure wash attachment on the hose to knock off the bugs I could reach, but there were tons in the top branches and a few stubborn ones down low. That same day, I used this Insect Control to do a root soak. Over the next two weeks, the remaining bugs fell off and the black moldiness on the trunk fell away. The leaves are greener and the trunk is back to a healthy brown in less than 3 weeks time. I was nervous to do a serious chemical application myself, but I will probably do this again next spring as a preventative.

    This DVD Belongs In A Time Capsule

    If you love 60's music............you MUST have this!!First, you get the original Monterey Pop film, remastered. I am fairly certain everyone here has seen it..............it's only about an hour and ten minutes long, but just Janis doing Ball And Chain would be quite enough. But I'm just getting started. You get Hendrix and Otis Redding's entire performances in this package. I already had them both, but if you don't............where ya been?Then we come to the expanded Monterey Pop disc, two hours of never before released footage from the Festival. I'm spellbound by this, and have watched it once a week for the last several weeks. It opens with a great vocal group that I'd completely forgotten about, The Association, doing a stunning Along Comes Mary. Then a two song segment that absolutely melts me and brings tears to my eyes every time I see it: Simon and Garfunkel, so impossibly young and in their prime, do deliciously beautiful renditions of Homeward Bound... 5/5 Robert Orme (Campbell, CA) - See all my reviews, June 19, 2016

    Excellent Movie

    5/5 C. L. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Complete Monterey Pop Festival (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) This is an awesome movie and well worth buying if you love great music. The bonus videos in this release were ot inthe original movie and make it even better. Here we see more of our favorite groups including Jefferson Airplane and Simon and Garfunkle. One of the bonuses is a song by Quicksilver Messenger Service. I love this group. This is the only bit of vide of QMS from the era of their first album with John Chippolina I have been able to buy. These concert movies always seem like teasers to me. They leave me wanting for more. Of course we can buy Jimi Hendrix plays Monterey, which is the whole concert except for one song. I wish I could buy the complete QMS performance especially, and also the complete performances by many of the other groups. I am sure these will eventually be released. I only hope it is while I am still here to see it. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2015
