Storyline

Sharkwater - The Story "An eye-opening film...visually stunning... this movie will change the way you see our oceans." - Bonnie Laufer, Tribute Magazine For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth. Driven by passion fed from a life-long fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, 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 most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. In an effort to protect sharks, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. ... Written by Sharkwater Productions Inc.

If you care about this world we live in, go see this movie, it will change the way you view the oceans and Sharks
19 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

From the opening credits with the first scene showing the Director with the sharks you knew this was not your ordinary shark movie. This young man, Rob Stewart risks his life to tell us that we cannot ignore what is happening in the worlds oceans - if we do we will all pay the price and threaten our own existence. A very strong message that everyone needs to hear. And not just the Amercian audiences but the international audiences, especially the Chinese who are becoming the next world power and who are the primary consumers of shark fins, and the primary reason sharks of every kind are facing extinction. On top of the story and its importance, the movie is a stunning visual treat, showing us an under water world only a few will every really see - this young filmmaker has done an outstanding job and I hope the rest of the world discovers this film and recognizes how important it is.
