The trailer for the film Sharkwater Extinction has been released. The film is the project and legacy of filmmaker Rob Stewart, who tragically died in 2017. The release date for the documentary film is October 5th, 2018. The film is a follow-up to the 2006 film Sharkwater, which was written and directed by Stewart.
“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.”
