Sharkwater Extinction (2018) is a thrilling and inspiring action packed journey that follows award winning filmmaker Rob Stewart as he exposes the massive illegal shark fin industry and the political corruption behind it — a conspiracy that is leading to the extinction of sharks. From West Africa, Spain, Panama, Costa Rica, France, and even in our own backyard, Stewart’s third film dives into the often violent underworld of the pirate fishing trade to expose a multi-billion dollar industry. Shark finning is still rampant, shark fin soup is still being consumed on an enormous scale, and endangered sharks are now also being used to make products for human consumption. Stewart’s mission is to save the sharks and oceans before it’s too late.
The first feature documentary Sharkwater is the winner of 39 international awards. It is directed by Rob Stewart and credited as igniting the movement to protect sharks, this action adventure documentary broke box office records and changed hearts and minds in people around the world, resulting in government policy changes, the creation of conservation groups, and a massive public outcry to end shark finning. Now shark finning is banned worldwide, and the Fin Free movement is working to ban shark fins entirely.
