Hey everyone and welcome to another totally sweet Discovery of the Day! MarketSquare recently moved into its Open Beta, meaning you can now sign up for a profile and explore all the site has to offer. From Monday to Friday we bring you some of the best projects from across the cryptosphere. Whether it’s NFTs, the metaverse or Blockchain games, you’ll find it all right here on MarketSquare! Today we take a closer look at an NFT project doing their part to help save the ocean…Fishy Fam!
Water, Water Everywhere!
The surface of the Earth is made up of about 71% water, the vast majority of which is brine which, needless to say, cannot be consumed by humans in order for them to stay hydrated. Having said this, the importance of the planet’s oceans cannot be overstated. Somewhere between 50 and 80% of all life is found within the oceans, and since so many communities depend on the bounties of the sea for their survival, it’s crucial that these massive underwater ecosystems are carefully looked after so that future generations can continue to benefit from them.
There is an estimated 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste in our oceans, which equates to about 46,000 individual pieces of plastic in every square mile of ocean. This is somewhere in the region of 269,000 tonnes of plastic waste. Every single day, nearly 8 million pieces of plastic makes its way into our oceans. Those are some really depressing facts that I wish weren’t true, but even if you’ve only seen some of the material on YouTube and The Discovery Channel, it’s pretty clear our oceans are in dire straits.
Thankfully there are forces working tirelessly to turn the tide on this massive problem and improve the state of our oceans. Every day there are people, groups, and charities working to reduce and put an end to pollution in our oceans once and for all. This is exactly what our Fishy Fam frens intend to help accomplish. So let’s take a deep dive into what they’re all about!
Dolphins are highly intelligent aquatic mammals and are pretty cute too!
A Home Beneath the Waves
Fishy Fam is a community-driven project focused on cleaning up the ocean by assisting charities and hosting IRL events. One of Fishy Fam’s main goals is to spread their message far and wide and leave their mark on the NFT space by making a positive impact in the world.
Holders of Fishy Fam NFTs will gain access to a number of items including:
- An awesomely adorable profile picture
- Tickets to IRL events
- Exclusive merchandise, and
- $toxic tokens
Most importantly, holders get to be part of changing the world for the better! Now that sounds like an amazing deal to me! The popularity of Fishy Fam seems to be growing at an explosive rate, and despite only having been around for a couple of weeks, they already have 30,000 people in their Discord. Check it out:

Now let’s take a gander at some of these lovable Fishy Fam NFTs!
Fishy Fam NFTs feature some clean and colorful art as well as a number of different traits, meaning that each and every NFT is entirely unique
Fishy Fam is still pretty new with the core team busy gearing up for mint, but despite this fact, their whitelist is already full! As a result, they have already closed the Google Form they had opened in their Discord. You stood a higher chance of getting whitelisted if you are involved in or hold an NFT from one or more of the following communities:
You can view the full list of eligible communities in the Fishy Fam Discord. Did you miss the opportunity to fill in the Google Form? No need to worry! Even if you aren’t part of any of the abovementioned communities, Fishy Fam will be hosting plenty of giveaways and contests over on their official Twitter, so if you’re lucky enough to win, you should be in line to secure a whitelist spot (or some other prize) without too much fuss.
The team over at Fishy Fam has a bunch of really cool stuff planned for the future including world tour in-real-life events, a community wallet, merchandise and collectibles, and, the most important part of all…ocean cleanups and charitable events! Check out the full Roadmap below 👇

Collaborations With NFT Communities
Fishy Fam really understand the power of community and collaboration. As such, they have created several collaborations with Crypto Mories, Alien Frens, Gunslingers and Cryptoon Goonz. Check out one of their more recent collaborations with Little Lemon Friends:

Fishy Fam has received overwhelmingly positive responses from these collaborations and managed to grow their community in record time. By offering members of existing projects some new forms of utility as well as some incentives to participate, Fishy Fam has developed a winning strategy that has catapulted their project into the stratosphere!
Fishy Fam is currently getting ready for their upcoming mint later this month. With its super cute and fun art style and rapidly growing community, Fishy Fam is set to be a project that could very well set a new standard for the NFT space. Make sure you follow them on Twitter and join their Discord to so that you can get on their whitelist and be ready to mint one of these sweet little sea monsters.
