The film Sharkwater – internationally award-winning documentary by Rob Stewart Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure.

What made him a dangerous journey into the balance of life on earth. Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes of bloodthirsty sharks, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.

Filmed in visually stunning high-definition video, Sharkwater takes you into the shark-rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding shark populations in the world marine reserves of Cocos Island Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador.

In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Your amazing adventure begins with a battle between the Sea Shepherd boat and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, Warship chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, which forced to flee for their lives.

Still, Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey. Each year 100 million sharks are caught to meet the demand for shark fin soup in Asia. Despite surviving the history of the land mass extinctions, sharks could easily be eliminated in a few years due to human greed.

Destruction of shark populations is a major problem for oceanic ecosystems, and all life on earth, 70% of our oxygen comes from life in the seas. Stewarts journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the worlds sharks into a fight for his life, and humanity.
