Sharkwater Extinction – premiere 5 October – video

For filmmaker Rob Stewart, learning about sharks began as an underwater adventure. But he instantly fell in love with these majestic creatures and what started out as just an adrenaline thrill quickly turned into a wonderful journey and a lifelong passion.

Driven by his fascination for these extraordinary creatures, Rob debunks the stereotypes that have grown up over the years and have been reinforced by the film industry and media, among others, which have turned sharks into bloodthirsty beasts that devour humans at every opportunity. Stewart decided to show the real image of sharks as a refuge and pillars of marine ecosystems.

Sharkwater: Extinction continues the work begun in the previous installment from 2006. Rob travels across four continents to investigate the corruption behind a billion dollar industry. The crew passes through some of the world’s most dangerous fishing ports, run by international criminal organisations that have captured the fishing industry.

100-150 million sharks are killed every year. Over the past 40 years, shark populations have declined by over 90%. Without a top predator at the top of the food chain, marine ecosystems are irreversibly re-evaluated and entire species face extinction.

Rob Stewart dedicated his life to saving the oceans saying: “Protecting the oceans is a fight to preserve human life and it’s worth fighting for.”

[blockquote style=”2″]”He taught the world to love the oceans and the creatures that inhabit them, depicting stunning scenes of interaction with sharks and manta rays on the frames of his films.”[/blockquote]
