Canadian filmmaker Rob Stewart sets the illegal fishing industry in his sights for his final film.
Sharkwater Extinction is the product of a a life-long obsession with marine conservation. Stewart's third film in his jaw-droppingly beautiful series aims to again de-myth the nature of sharks across the world's oceans, focusing instead of the ecological importance of these apex predators.
Stewart's films have an impassioned exposè quality to them. They are attributed to significantly reducing the consumption of shark fin soup across Asia, and have led to the uncovering an illegal industry.
The film was finished by Stewart's parents after the renowned filmmaker passed away in a diving accident during filming. His legacy is the plea for people around the world to take marine conservation seriously - as though their existence depends upon it.
