Praise for Sex in the Sea

"Every page is hilarious, and quotable, covering oceanic orgies in all their glory." —Cool Green Science

“Amusing … You’ll never watch Finding Nemo the same way again.”BUST

“Hardt’s writing is often spectacular at describing the rituals and courtships of underwater reproduction.” The New Republic

“A voyeuristic romp.” The Economist

“[An] oceanographic Kinsey Report.”O, The Oprah Magazine

“Hardt’s science is up to date in a field where research can be difficult, and readers will feel confident that they can talk intelligently about fish gonads at their next sushi dinner.”
Publishers Weekly

“A watery romp under the waves that will appeal to anyone wanting to broaden their knowledge of our watery planet.” Kirkus

“It’s hard not to smile when reading this cheeky, yet relevant survey of sexual relations among marine creatures. … For all the lightheartedness, which armchair naturalists will love, the science is important and effective.”Booklist
