- Twitter users fanned themselves after reviewing his "clams".
All we need for Christmas is a hot French guy talking about scallops and oysters shirtless.
Twitter Suddenly he became very interested in sustainable fishing in France after the national broadcaster France 2 broadcast an interview with a fisherman named Tomy who showed off his toned body on camera.
French journalist Marie Le Conte, who lives in London, shared a clip of the interview on the social media platform in which the British were introduced to Tomy's scallops and mussels.
In that segment, Tomy explained that he had to be shirtless because he spends most of his time plucking oysters, clams, and scallops with water up to his shoulders.
Newly spotted fishing fans were quick to comment on the fisherman's good looks, with some jokes they wouldn't mind if he fished in their waters in cheeky references to the current Brexit talks.
Frenchman Tomy, who fishes scallops on a sustainable basis, made hearts beat faster after appearing shirtless on national television during the midday news on public broadcaster France 2
"You have a feeling that many of you could use this video of a beautiful, topless French man who talks lovingly about the seafood he sustainably hand-catches," wrote Le Conte on Twitter and tweeted the video from France 2 again.
The segment first aired during the station's lunchtime newscast before it was shared online.
It started with a shirtless Tomy dragging boxes of fresh scallops and explaining that he picked them by hand.
When asked how he could be shirtless at 8am and work outside in a warehouse at 8 degrees, Tomy shrugged and said in French, “Well, I don't really have a choice, I spend most of the day with guns in the water up to his shoulders. & # 39;
The fisherman explained that he dives to hand-pick all of the seafood he sells, such as oysters and clams
The sustainable fisherman explained he was diving with an oxygen tank to select the scallops you want without using nets or other mass fishing instruments to be more sustainable.
But Twitter users who stumbled upon Tomy's handsome looks were more interested in his clothes – or lack thereof – than in his message.
"I feel like my timeline is always being greatly improved by beautiful, topless French fishermen," wrote another.
"Excusez moi, while I single-handedly revive the referendum," joked one.

"He can fish in my waters," said one of the current pre-Brexit talks between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union on fisheries law.
"Is he in the ongoing negotiations?" one of Tomy asked the fisherman.
"Does he explain why he's not wearing a top? I'm not complaining, just curious," one asked.
Newly discovered fish enthusiasts were quick to comment on the good looks of the Frenchman and joked about the ongoing negotiations on the EU Brexit deal
One person replied, “If you encourage him to consider the question, he could put on a top. This would be a net loss. (That wasn't even meant to be a play on words. I'm distracted.) & # 39;
"My wife suddenly became interested in sustainable French fishing," joked one husband.
“I didn't know I needed a nice topless French fisherman, but here we are. Thank you for your service, ”said another.
"Bonjour, je viens pêcher des coquilles avec vous," said one in French and said, "Hello, I'm coming to fish for scallops with you."
The issue of fisheries, which the Brexit deal with the EU is holding back
Brexit negotiators are putting "final pressures" on an agreement today as they strike a compromise on the sensitive issue of fishing in UK waters. According to reports, they could go back to £ 60 million in catches.
To put that number into context, it's significantly less than the £ 89million midfielder Paul Pogba brought to Manchester United from Juventus in 2016. This is still the record transfer for a player who has reached the top division in England.
Cabinet Secretary Robert Jenrick said he was "reasonably optimistic" that a late deal would be agreed, just over a week from the end of the transition period.
Government sources confirmed last night that Boris Johnson set up a "hotline" for European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen when both sides attempt to negotiate a deal before Christmas.
The couple is believed to have made regular secret phone calls for the past 48 hours.
Ms. von der Leyen is also said to have set up return channels to German Chancellor Angela Merkel – the EU's power broker – and French President Emmanuel Macron, who is seen as the main obstacle to a deal on Downing Street.
Diplomatic sources said the EU's chief negotiator for Brexit, Michel Barnier, was not even aware of the content of secret talks between the prime minister and Ms. von der Leyen on Monday evening – suggesting that he has been getting increasingly out of hand in the last few days of negotiations .
London wants to reduce the share of EU fishing fleets in the estimated annual transport volume of 650 million euros by more than a third, with the changes being made gradually over more than three years.
The EU, especially countries with northern fishing fleets such as France, Denmark and the Netherlands, insist on 25 percent for a period of at least six years.
To break the impasse, Prime Minister's Chief Negotiator David Frost has launched a new fishing offer that would allow EU trawlers to keep more of the fish they are currently catching in UK waters.
