Three Atlantic Mackerel (Scomber scombrus)

Original hand painted watercolour artwork, capturing all the colours and patterns of the mackerel fish.

IUCN Red listed- Least concerned, population decreasing 

1. This species of high commercial importance has lost its sustainable status after overfishing has causes a catastrophic decline in stocks. It is caught with trawls, purse seines, gill and trammel nets.

2. It is also caught for recreational sport, fished with hook and line.

3. Climate change affects the distribution of this species. Mackerel fished around Britain are protected by an EU quota system, as sea temperature rises the fish have began to head north, so now are out of these controls.

Southern Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus maccoyii)

Original hand painted watercolour artwork.

2. Only 3 – 8% of the original number of Southern Bluefin Tuna still exist.

3. There is no sign that the spawning stock is rebuilding, if its population continues to decline, the species faces the possibility of extinction.

Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis)

Original hand painted artwork, using lots of blue colours. 

 

IUCN Red listed -Listed least concern, population stable

1. Skipjack Tuna make up 60% of the legally caught commercial tuna catch worldwide and is mostly used for canning. 

2. Although it is not currently threatened, the fishing nets and other unsustainable methods used to catch skipjack tuna results in bycatch of other vulnerable species, including dolphin and other juvenile tuna species.

3. Skipjack tuna are an important prey species for sharks and play an important intermediate role in the food chain.

Hedgehog seahorse (Hippocampus spinosissimus)

Original hand-painted artwork, capturing all the details of this seahorse species.

 

IUCN Red Listed- Vulnerable population, decreasing 

1. It is traded both live, for the aquarium trade as well as dry, for use in traditional medicine.

2. Although there have been no dedicated population estimates analyses of seahorse trade and fisher surveys suggest population declines of at least 30% in the past 10 years.

3. The challenge is increased further by the fact that most seahorses are caught as bycatch.

Big Eye Tuna (Thunnus obsess)

Original hand painted artwork, using lots of blue colours. 

 

IUCN Red listed- Vulnerable, population decreasing 

1. Bigeye tuna are generally smaller than bluefin and larger than yellowfin. They are an important commercial fish, usually marketed as fresh or frozen and highly valued as a sushi fish, especially in Japan.

2. Although tuna do provide food and livelihoods for people, they are more than just seafood, they are a top predator in the marine food chain, maintaining a balance in the ocean environment.

3. Longline fishers use thousands of dangling hooks on lines stretching up to 60 nautical miles long creating a curtain of death across huge swaths of the ocean, indiscriminately catching large amounts of other marine life along with the targeted bigeye tuna, including whales, dolphins, turtles, sharks and seabirds.

Yellow fin Tuna (Thunnus albacares)

Original hand-painted artwork, capturing the vivid colours of this tuna species.

 

IUCN Red listed- Near threatened, decreasing population

1. Global expansion and technological developments had a major impact on tuna fishing this overexploitation risks stock collapse. 

2. The yellowfin tuna is one of the fastest swimmers in the ocean which is why in some locations they can be found swimming with dolphins.

3. Tuna contains more mercury than other popular seafood that equals or exceeds a person’s weekly reference dose.

Albacore tuna (Thunnus alalunga)

Original hand-painted artwork, capturing the vivid colours of this tuna species.

 

IUCN Red listed- Near threatened, decreasing population

1. These fish are important commercially, as they are one of the two main canned tuna species along with skipjack, labeled as ‘solid white’ tuna.  Albacore tuna contains mercury levels almost three times higher than the smaller skipjack tuna.

2. Tuna are a top predator in the marine food chain, a decreasing population upsets the balance in the ocean environment.

3. Most populations of albacore have been totally overfished. The only relatively healthy stocks are in the Pacific, but these are in sharp decline.
