A New Approach to the Perils of Overfishing

Why is Gillian Anderson nude wrapped in a conger eel? Posing for a British campaign called Fishlove. Photographs in dramatically lit studios, by renown photographers, of celebrities in the buff, expressing their love for assorted sea creatures all to bring awareness to overfishing and clean conscious eating. The campaign was produced by Nicholas Röhl, co-owner of Japanese restaurant MOSHIMO, based in Brighton, U.K. See the entire collection of photographs here.

While the images are playful, the issue is a serious one. The deep ocean is the largest habitat on the planet -- teeming with all kinds of unique marine life including corals and sponges that live for thousands of years. But deep-sea bottom trawlers are destroying them - dragging giant weighted nets, fixed to cables and steel plates more than 2 tonnes each, across the ocean floor to catch a small number of low value fish. It’s like clear-cutting a forest to catch a few squirrels! More than 300 scientists have united to stop this blind and costly destruction, which is subsidized by taxpayers' money. But greedy fishing companies have roped in political support to oppose the efforts.
