J. SHEEKEY OYSTER BAR FISHLOVE THEATRE SERIES. CALLING FOR GREATER MARINE PROTECTION IN UK WATERS
I was lucky enough to be at the Fishlove shoot on the day Felicity Dean participated in these now iconic campaigns. I was there to interview one of the founders, Greta Scacchi. This particular series has been captured by photographer, Jillian Edelstein.
Fishlove is a series of striking images which is now at the heart of a global movement to protect our seas from destructive fishing practices. The portraits, featuring celebrated individuals with fish, have succeeded in raising significant awareness for campaigns such as Marine Conservation Society, OCEAN2012, Deep Sea Coalition, The End of the Line, and Blue Marine Foundation.
The collapse of fish stocks is an environmental catastrophe that is seen by scientists as being as important as climate change. But the good news is that it is a catastrophe that can be easily averted. With the right political measures over the next five years, our seas can survive for generations to come.
