Some background on the piece.
Cyanide poisoning and explosives are used to catch coral reef saltwater fish and live coral for the hobbyist, marine pet trade across many parts of the world. Leaving reef wastelands and causing destruction to the natural habitat of the coral reef. Most, if not all, saltwater fish sold in aquariums are live caught from the wild. Live rock, created by centuries of coral polyps, is also chipped from reefs in the wild.
10% of sales of this limited edition A3 print “SHRIMP” 1/15 will be donated to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation. http://www.barrierreef.org/
