A heart wrenching moment, especially when there was nothing we could do at the time..
If the people didn't consume the target species, then they wouldn't be fishing for it and this wouldn't have happened #eatmoreplants
This video is about a Humpback Whale we filmed off the coast of Tasmania with what looks to be a rope off a fish trap or lobster pot, unless this animal can free itself of the rope or it breaks, it will likely be a slow but sure death to this Whale, especially if it can't feed.
You can clearly see that this Whale is already exhausted, its hardly moving its tail for propulsion and relying on its pectoral flippers.
So sad but a reminder about what we consume and the impacts the it can have on the Marine environment, even if it is 'sustainable'..
