In an extraordinary initiative to safeguard our oceans and aquatic life, Fishlove, a captivating project, has harnessed the star power of 18 international celebrities, including actors, entrepreneurs, and designers. These high-profile individuals have bared it all in a striking photo shoot, capturing the world’s attention and highlighting the critical issues of illegal fishing and environmental pollution affecting our water bodies.
Fishlove’s mission revolves around creating powerful imagery to support the global movement dedicated to preserving our oceans from the devastating consequences of illegal fishing and pollution. By featuring well-known figures in an au naturel setting, the project sparks dialogue and encourages a deeper connection to these crucial environmental concerns.
It’s essential to note that the fish involved in this photo shoot aren’t specially caught for the occasion. They’re responsibly sourced from stocks already intended for consumption, minimizing any adverse ecological impact. After the shoot, they are utilized in special culinary establishments, ensuring no waste.
This remarkable project was initiated in 2009, and we invite you to explore 18 of the most breathtaking photographs captured during its existence. These images serve as a reminder of the urgency in protecting our oceans and the magnificent life they harbour.
