Why are celebrities like Miriam Margolyes or Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise posing naked with dead fish? To save the fish, of course! Well... not the ones in the pictures obviously but some of their relatives. 



This isn't really a new practice. It's part of a non-profit called Fish Love which is aimed at raising awareness of unsustainable fishing practices. Their goal is to teach people how to choose more sustainable fish to eat. Fish Love has been around since 2009 and has photographed many other celebrities in the past like Gillian Anderson and Helena Bonham Carter.

The newly discovered spider called the dolomedes briangreenei hails from, you guessed it, Australia.  One of it's species, whose name is Brian, was presented at the World Science Festival in Brisbane. 

He was named after Professor Brian Greene, cofounder of the World Science Festival and a string theorist. 



Brian (the spider, not the string theorist) uses vibrations in the water to fish. Robert Raven, Principal Scientist of Arachnology at the Queensland Museum told Mashable:

These spiders sit there on the water and then all of a sudden an insect will hit the water and the spider races out to get it, grabs it, dives under the water and then swims back to the shore and starts eating it. 


It eats insects, fish and toads up to three times it's own size. Apparently its bites aren't that dangerous but the fact remains; now even the water is not safe from spiders.

Zoe Jackson must have thought she really found someone special on the dating website Plenty of Fish. That's why when he broke up with her she got revenge by leaving a bunch of dead mackerel in her boyfriend of three months, Gerard Brogan's hot tub.  He discovered it days later but caught the culprit by reviewing CCTV footage. 



He found Jackson (pictured above) on camera acting fishy with a large trashbag near his hot tub at night.  She has been ordered to pay for the repair of the hot tub and we can only guess that Brogan will stay away from online dating for a while.

This stingray goes beast-rapid-freaking-fire mode, on the whole birthing process. Who'd have thought an unsuspecting fisherman could make such a great, entirely spontaneous midwife?

Let's just count our blessings that the f-bomb dropping, Bostonian madman fisherman wasn't around. He's still trying to get over that whole Ocean Sunfish business..

What has three eyes and swims in the water?

This catfish.

Video has emerged showing a three-eyed catfish that was caught in the notoriously polluted Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn.

Greg Hunter, who shot the video, told WABC that people started crowding around a man who caught the catfish from a bridge.

"It was a crazy scene," he said.

Blinky?

"It's a baby whale!"

Michael Bergin had himself an aquatic adventure the likes of which the rest of us can only dream of having.

Well, at least he acted like it. The very excitable Bostonian (actually his Facebook profile says he's from Malden, MA, which is just outside Boston) landed the fish of his dreams and goes insane during the whole adventure.

This glorious man guesses that it's everything from a baby whale to a tuna.

We're almost positive it's an ocean sunfish, which do indeed swim in the Atlantic. A few of the Facebook commenters agreed with us.

World Wildlife Fund study finds that the number of marine life in the ocean has halved since 1970.

There may no longer be plenty of fish in the sea.

A new study from the World Wildlife Fund arrived Sept. 16 to give you that particular sinking feeling that can only be found in the apocalyptic state towards which the world is slowly deteriorating.

The study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, found that global marine life has declined by half, half, since 1970.

Analysis by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) of the population trends of marine species as presented in WWF's Living Blue Planet Report - an updated study of marine mammals, birds, reptiles and fish - shows a decline of 49 per cent in the size of marine populations between 1970 and 2012. As well as being disastrous for ecosystems, these findings spell trouble for all nations, especially people in the developing world who depend heavily on the ocean's resources.

The findings are based on the Living Planet Index, a database maintained and analysed by researchers at ZSL. Following alarming statistics raised in the Living Planet Report 2014, revealing huge declines in vertebrate populations around the world, this special report studies how overfishing, damage to habitat and climate change are affecting marine biodiversity.

The analysis tracked 5,829 populations of 1,234 species, from sea birds to sharks to leatherback turtles, making the data sets almost twice as large as past studies.



With fun subheadings like "Global food supply depleted" and "Devastating figures", the study credits climate change with causing the crazy decline.



Luckily, our national leaders are all firmly committed to reversing carbon emissions and slowing the steady pace of man-made climate change.

I've got to go lie down.
