A SECRET community of real-life mermaids are donning silicone tails, keenly attending mer-conventions and taking to the waters of Seattle. With their own MerNetwork - a forum where merfolk can connect and organise conventions - and social media profiles of ‘professional’ mermaids generating hundreds of thousands of followers, the mer-community seems to be a growing one.
