The boundless harvests of the sea are not so limitless anymore, researchers say.Nearly one-fifth of the world's annual fish and shellfish harvests is caught within 200 miles of the United States coastline. Bays, estuaries and wetlands appear to be among the most imperiled habitats.Only 15 percent of the major fish species are yielding stocks near their potential level, according to a report by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation."The 1990s will definitely be a time of reckoning in the fishing industry," said Brian J. Rothschild, a biologist at the University of Maryland.

During the past 10 years, my husband and I have been fortunate enough to spend a few weeks each summer in southern France. Celebrated for its natural beauty, the region boasts rugged mountains, beautiful beaches and endless fields of lavender and flowers.For art lovers, there are myriad museums that house masterpieces of painters who lived and worked in Provence. Then, of course, there's the perfect summer weather -- warm and almost always sunny.But my reason for returning time and again to this area is to savor the delicious yet unpretentious food.

Even avowed fish lovers often shy away from cooking seafood at home. Chief among the reasons for this piscaphobia are worries about freshness and confusion about cooking methods. But two studies released last week give fish fans new incentive to move past those doubts in the name of good health. A Harvard School of Public Health study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that eating one to two servings of fish a week could reduce by a third the chances of dying from a heart attack, and that the health benefits of eating seafood strongly outweigh the risks.

WASHINGTON - Thomas Keller is watching me slice an onion, and he is not pleased. "Get closer to the food," he says and demonstrates that instead of keeping my distance, I should be hovering over the onion and the knife. Closer is safer, Keller says. Then, with a flash of humor, he tells me you can't show fear in the kitchen, otherwise the knives will sense it and trouble will follow. "It is like dogs," he says. "They know when you are afraid." As a former paperboy, Keller knows about dogs.

Fish and citrus fruit. It's a perfect marriage of flavors.And the time is ripe.I long to match citrus with fish, a symbiotic pairing that makes fish taste fabulous. Even "fishy" fish becomes mild-mannered when complemented with citrus.Fried calamari become a delicacy with a generous squeeze of lemon juice.Sauteed scallops can make your palate snap to attention when a splash of orange juice is lightly drizzled on top.Better yet, poach salmon fillets in a mixture of orange juice, shallots and a little fish stock (or clam juice)

For most of us, champagne is less a beverage than a symbol of celebration: the sparkling glass we lift to toast the new year, a marriage, a promotion. The question of whether it goes better with lobster or lamb might never occur to us. "People don't even think of champagne as wine," says Baltimore wine expert Al Spoler, co-host of Cellar Notes on WYPR-FM. "Certainly not as something you'd see on the table with dinner." OK, then, let's start with breakfast. "One of the great food-and-wine pairings is scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and champagne," says Serena Sutcliffe, the British director of wine for Sotheby's auction house and the author of Champagne: The History and Character of the World's Greatest Wine (Simon & Schuster, 1988)

WASHINGTON -- Throughout four decades of Cold War, a great and dangerous game was played out in the shadows.Secret U-2 flights snapped pictures of missile silos. Spies were swapped during late-night rendezvous at Glienicker Bridge in Germany. Phone calls were plucked from Kremlin limousines by roving U.S. eavesdropping satellites.But what took place in the skies and on the ground was rivaled by the little-known espionage beneath the waves. Spies didn't just wear trench coats; they also wore Navy blue.

Ever read food articles in which the writer is extolling the fresh, briny taste of some freshly caught seafood?These stories always make my mouth water. The writer, of course, is sitting in a cafe, overlooking a waterfront. The delicacy practically jumps from the net onto his plate. The waiter brings the perfect wine, costing pennies, and the writer is blissed out. The scene is set in the south of Spain, Portugal or France. It certainly isn't in the parking lot of your supermarket.No matter what the quality of your fish counter, it isn't nearly as romantic.
