It seems Captain Birdseye has a new rival targeting his stern.
For it has emerged Leonardo DiCaprio has invested in a sustainable frozen seafood company.
The jet-setting environmentalist announced he was investing some of his estimated $245 million fortune in Love The Wild on Tuesday.
In a statement given to People, the yachting enthusiast said: '“Estimates show the earth’s population approaching nine billion by 2050, putting tremendous pressure on our natural food resources.
'Seafood is a primary source of protein for nearly a billion people–but ​climate change, acidification and over fishing are putting increased pressure on our oceans’ natural stability.'
Among the dishes currently on offer are catfish with cajun creme and rainbow trout with salsa verde. At this point in time they have yet to branch out and offer their own brand of fish fingers.
It is clearly a labour of love for the 42-year-old Titanic beefcake, who loves nothing more than sailing around the world on super yachts with his rich friends.
And he was doubtlessly attracted to the venture due to the fact the business uses only sustainable farmed species of fish, which avoids the depletion of wild populations.

Leonardo added: 'The exploitation of our oceans has left many marine ecosystems on the brink of total collapse, which is hurting our ability to harvest our seas as a reliable food source as we have for thousands of years,”
He claimed Love The Wild 'is empowering people to take action on this crisis in a very meaningful way.'

Other environmentally-minded investments made by the star include a company which sources tea from the Ecuadorian Amazon and a business which cultures diamonds with a zero carbon footprint in California.
The Catch Me If You Can is far from the first celebrity to invest in fish farming however.
Jethro Tull star Ian Anderson was one of the most notable, and had an empire made up of 11 fish farms, a smokehouse and two processing factories in his native Scotland before selling up in the late 1990s.
