Conservation and protection of the oceans has become an urgent issue, and very few governments and NGOs are doing anything about this. In this underwater series, I try to drive our attention towards the beauty of our oceans and a truth usually unnoticed: We are brutally overfishing in our oceans, and our attention should be concentrated on the way we fish as well as what we eat from the ocean. We see and care when a forest is gone because it is visible to everybody, but we don't see when we destroy life underwater, we don't see how nets from the tuna, the shrimp industry and the whaling vessels cause damage and death to the sea.
We are not familiar with this environment because we don't see what we destroy, and this needs to change very quickly so we can reverse this course. By sharing the beauty and poetry of our oceans we might start to care more and build the connection between the sea and ourselves.
