New Zealand band Fat Freddy's Drop has got in behind the bottom trawling campaign this week by doing what they do best. The band has released a funky new video remix of one of their songs cut in with images and footage from the deep sea.
Dobie Blaze, Fat Freddy's Drop keyboard player and a keen recreational fisherman, is particularly concerned about the impact of bottom trawling on deep-sea life and the future of fishing. He and trombonist Ho-Pepa made a special trip to giant squid expert Steve O'Shea's lab to check out the evidence for themselves..
