As sea ice melts due to climate change, destructive fishing vessels are heading further north than ever before, putting this previously inaccessible ecosystem at risk.
The Arctic Ocean is home to iconic sea creatures such as bowhead whales and Greenland sharks which depend on the unique habitat for their survival.
This part of our planet is also inhabited by many magical creatures like the sea butterfly, lion’s mane jellyfish and many more yet to be discovered.
This ecosystem has been remote and safe from human activity until now - it could soon be destroyed as fishing fleets drag their heavy fishing nets behind them scraping all life forms from the seabed.
