Four Fish also formed the basis of a 2011 cover story of Time Magazine. “Fish are the last wild food” wrote the Time editors, echoing Four Fish’s subtitle, “but our oceans are being picked clean. Can farming fish take the place of catching them?” In 2011 Greenberg won the James Beard Award for Writing and Literature for Four Fish and he now lectures widely throughout North America.
