Hagfish Deserve Some Love

This petition had 422 supporters

The Pacific Hagfish need your help! It is an endangered species of jaw-less fish that plays an integral role in the marine ecosystem by cleaning the ocean of the remains of dead fish. Without the Pacific hagfish, the ocean's ecosystem would become inundated with fish corpses. This ancient fish's survival could also benefit humans enormously. The slime which it secretes from its skin is made of protein fibers that could be used to make major medical and technological advancements in the near future. Unfortunately, hagfish are endangered due to careless fishing, being caught in bottom trawling nets and skinned to make wallets. Please help us to preserve the Pacific Hagfish population.
