The latest celebrity to make her plea is well-known for the role she played on the television series, The X-Files. Gillian Anderson is partaking in a most powerful campaign to stop the destruction of the ocean.

To make a lasting impact as she reaches out to the world, Gillian was photographed by famed French portrait photographer, Denis Rouvre, for Fishlove, an online campaign dedicated to educating avid water enthusiasts about the global marine ecosystem and the growing plight that it faces if unsustainable fishing practices are allowed to continue.

A naked Gillian Anderson is wrapped in a very live eel to show just how devoted she truly is to her cause. She holds it in one hand and lifts its head to the camera. Gillian was joined by other celebrities posing with bass fish, sharks and other fish to spread awareness on the toll that overfishing is taking on our oceans. There is a controversial image of actor Jean Marc Barr with a large mako shark. Designers have also joined the fight and Japanese fashion designer, Kenzo, is featured in the campaign as well.

There is a vote going to the European Parliament to ban destructive forms of deep-sea fishing in the Northeast Atlantic. The Fishlove Organization is doing their part to try to rally voters to sign a petition ending deep-sea trawling. Celebrities such as Gillian Anderson are resorting to social media platforms of choice, Twitter, to spread the word. This is an ingenious way to save our oceans and its precious marine habitat as well as to solicit signatures for this crucial petition.

If you care about the state of our marine habitat and the waters that they live within, please go to www.fishlove.co.uk and sign the petition. The more signatures, the more likely the ban is to pass. It isn't just about the fish, it is also about our future.
