Antarctic and Patagonian toothfish are an incredible deep-water fish, with natural antifreeze in their blood. This allows them to live thousands of metres deep in the frigid waters of Antarctica.
Industrial fishing has destroyed most coastal fisheries due to the relative ease of access. With the destruction of coastal fisheries, toothfish are now targeted. This means that large trawlers travel massive distances, using long-lines with up to 60,000 hooks, to plunder what little is left of our world’s oceans. Importantly, toothfish contribute nothing to global food security.
