Fish And Power Shifts: How The Marshall Islands Became A Fishery Superpower … In “Our Ocean’s Promise: From Aspirations to Inspirations,” author Giff Johnson chronicles the history of fishing in the Marshall Islands, and forecasts an even more prosperous future.

Just how did a small nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean become a major player in the fishing world?

Giff Johnson, editor of The Marshall Islands Journal, seeks an answer in his new book “Our Ocean’s Promise: From Aspirations to Inspirations.” It tracks the country’s fishery from its time under Japanese and American rule to now, as a nation with one of the busiest tuna transshipment ports in the world.

Johnson researched and wrote the book — which was formally launched on Oct. 8 — over the course of five months, parsing documents spanning almost a century.
