Because it shows that they will be extinct without our help.

Fish get no respect.

Appetite's for destruction

To me it portrays a little more of the vastness I think of in regard to ocean life.

It's one thing to fish for your own family's food as you need it, but quite another to trap and abuse them just for gain of fortune.

The tuna is a major food resource for humans. Unlike Brian's other images, which all capture beautiful imagery of the ocean the tuna is the one that makes us accountable. Something we eat, a top of the food chain predator that when removed will change the course of the oceans systems and our food resources. By having the tuna on display maybe people will become more self aware of moderation, demand, sense of responsibility, and caring for our amazing ocean.

As I view this beautiful photograph, I'm haunted by the realization that capturing an image like this one may soon be impossible. This species has experienced a precipitous decline in the last 60 years - primarily due to overfishing - and is quickly headed for extinction if we don't do something now to protect it.
Florida,
United States
Because in encounters the majestic castrayed of a world so unknowing. just by looking, the world calls out for the unknown.
Oregon,
United States
Tuna were once in abundance now they are endangered. Human's need to eat until we burst and use as many pollutants as possible in a day have done that.
North Carolina,

Tuna are extremely important as a food supply.

The BlueFin photograph captures the vanishing world through its status of a species being specifically targeted by a industry that has no restraint while the actual image captures the mystery behind the sea which we have never fully known as well as the mystery of where are these spectacular creatures hiding?

Tuna is thought of as typical seafood but if we don't do something tuna will be a fish of our predecessors.
Argentina
Because of the problem of overfishing and what it represent for the entire marine ecosystem. Try to tell people to take care and choose seafood that comes from sustainable fisheries.

It shows fish swimming, yet they're slowly fading away, to symbolize their population among others is decreasing.
Connecticut,
United States
Overfishing threatens not only the balance of the marine ecosystem but also the millions of humans who depend primarily on fish for protein.
Maryland,
United States
Almost ghost-like feeling.
United Kingdom
They are the giant pandas of the sea.
Minnesota,
United States
I think it would have the biggest impact on people's everyday lives, as they're more apt to see this and other fish on their dinner table.
Virginia,
United States
Illustrates problem of overfishing of certain species, particularly those that mostly live outside of protected zones.

I think that the rise in overfishing will soon come to haunt current and future generations as one of our most important food sources disappears. I've recently learned that farmed salmon has higher levels of chemicals and heavy metals than its wild counterparts and are even fed colorants to turn their flesh orange. As a young member of this society, I would like to know how I can keep fish as a main component of my diet but in a more sustainable matter. Also, I'm curious as to when the fish may start to die off in a status quo scenario.
