The Edge of the Sea is a book by the American conservationist Rachel Carson, first published by Houghton Mifflin in the U.S. in 1955. It is counted the third book of her so-called sea trilogy.

The Edge of the Sea was made commercially possible by the smash success of its predecessor The Sea Around Us in 1951 and 1952. Carson had become a full-time writer and this third book may be called her first as a conservationist rather than a marine biologist.
