Hannibal star Gillian Anderson posed nude with a big eel of the Conger variety, in protest of depleting Euro fish populations, per the Fishlove movement.

According to its website, Fishlove was established in 2009 by Nicholas Röhl, co-owner of MOSHIMO, and actress Greta Scacchi to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth’s marine ecosystem. Other nude Fishlove models that have posed for photographers Rankin, Alan Gelati and Denis Rouvre include Sir Ben Kingsley, Olivia Williams and Jeri Hall.

Fishlove’s latest petition reads, “Amazing animals that live in the deep ocean are being systematically destroyed by massive fishing nets that catch or crush everything in their path. But in days, the European Parliament could vote to protect one of the world’s most precious deep-sea habitats, and we need to give them the public mandate to do it. On December 10th, Members of the European Parliament can vote to ban the most destructive forms of deep-sea fishing in the Northeast Atlantic…Let’s make sure they have what they need before this historical vote! If we come together right now to raise our voices – we can ensure one of the most wonderful ocean habitats in the world is protected. Sign the petition right now and share this with everyone.”

Here’s Anderson admiring her eel pic:

Incidentally, Conger is a genus of marine congrid eels, which includes some of the longest varieties of eels, with the European species reaching 10 feet. Conger eels are a tad vicious as well, as diver Jimmy Griffin can attest to – In July, a Conger bit a chunk out of his face, as he was diving about 75 feet down near the west coast of Ireland.

In related news, Anderson and her former X-files costar David Duchovny have recently suggested that they would be okay with doing another X-files film, during a celebration of the 20 year reunion of the X-files pilot.

    I fined it funny how people pose nude for causes. Really it is just about the star getting publicity. People need to start posing nude for the homeless or for poverty or starvation or drought. It is always something “trendy” that they pose nude for. It is just all so hypocritical. Just like those sad animal commercials were a dog is in a cage and Sarah McLachlin comes and sings. Walk down to your local prison and you will see human beings in the very same cages. Don’t give me this nonsense that animals are innocent and people aren’t. Heck, half the people in our prisons don’t belong there. Take away the prison industries and our prisons will be emptied in a minute. Prison is big money in the United States.

    God made those bodies, therefore there’s nothing ugly underneath your clothing.
