In a new book called “The Billion-Dollar Fish,” coming out this spring, fisheries biologist Kevin Bailey delves into the life history of the humble walleye pollock -- and he explains how it became the foundation for the extremely lucrative fishery we have today. But will it last?

In this segment of "The Exchange," Bailey discusses his book, and how to predict when a fishing boom will go bust.
