2nd Place Underwater Conservation Ocean Art Safe Under The Sea

Gaetano Gargiulo

"In the Net"



The Story: This dive site is in the heart of a fishing town, at the boundary of the drop-off fishermen place a post net to fish, usually the net is removed early morning, that day was still there when we dived, on our way down to the deep wall, we flanked the net and I was struck by the agony of this large scorpion fish that was struggling to free itself. As the net is authorized by the competent authority, we could not interfere but nevertheless was sad to see fishes struggle and be eaten alive (thru their wounds and cuts) by hermit crabs and other small fishes.
