This is the blobfish (you may have seen him a few months ago on page 2 of the Metro).  Unfortunately for him, he lives at the same level of the sea as other fish which are rather more edible.  However, certain countries have allowed the practice of “bottom trawling”, which knows no discrimination with what it picks up in the nets.  It is, of course, faster, easier and therefore brings in more profit.  That’s why I think Blobby is a victim of greed.
