According to the charity, the star went swimming with the bluefin yesterday to record a special PSA calling for their protection.
“Kinda nervous,” he wrote on his Twitter page prior to the swim. “If you could swim in virtually, bottomless, open ocean an hour off shore, with a school of 2000lb blue fine tuna, would you?”
His swim came on the same day that a trade ban on the species was defeated in Doha – a decision that could mean the end of the endangered fish.
“Back in from international waters-rugged free diving w/bluefin tuna-These creatures are bitchin’,” wrote the star following the dive.
We’ll keep you updated with news about Grenier’s work to save the bluefin when it comes to hand. In the meantime, click here to see a photo of the star swimming with the tigers of the sea.
