Sharkwater Extinction is a thrilling, action-packed journey that follows filmmaker Rob Stewart’s hard-nosed exposé of 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 underworld of the pirate fishing trade to expose a multi-billion dollar industry. Shark finning is still rampant, with shark fin soup still being consumed on an enormous scale, and endangered sharks are routinely added to our everyday products, many intended for human consumption.

Stewart’s mission is to save the sharks and oceans before it’s too late. But exposing illegal activities isn’t easy and protecting sharks earned Rob some powerful enemies.
