There is no denying that the world’s oceans are beautiful and mysterious, but most of us never get the chance to witness the spectacular ecosystems that are in place beneath the shore line. Perhaps it is for this reason that many people don’t feel particularly motivated to fight to protect the ocean. But whether you have ever been face-to-face with a clown fish or not, this video is sure to compel you to drop whatever it is you are doing and start looking for ways you can protect the planet’s oceans!

This short film was created by underwater photographer Howard Hall and is intended to raise awareness about the dangers of over-fishing. All the creatures you see in this stunning short are living at the risk of becoming “bycatch,” swept up by deep sea trawl and gill nets. About 50 percent of the fish caught by commercial fisheries that utilize trawl and gill nets are considered trash; non-target species that die caught in nets only to be thrown back into the ocean as “waste.” As Hall’s video shows, each creature present in our oceans is brilliant and deserving of a chance to live! Share this video with everyone you know and check out this article to learn how you can help protect the world’s oceans.
