Sharkwater Extinction

In January 2017, while shooting Sharkwater Extinction, Rob, a Malibu-based filmmaker, tragically passed away during a dive off the Florida Keys. The world was stunned by the loss of one of the most influential activists of our time. Rob taught the world to love the oceans and to not fear sharks through his iconic images of hugging and free diving with sharks and mantas.

Rob risked everything to educate, preserve and defend the oceans. The film’s producers, along with a talented group of editors, filmmakers, and loyal Sharkwater supporters, were compelled to continue his work.

Sharkwater Extinction‘s  will have it's world premiere at TIFF in September 2018 

Sharkwater Extinction from the Award Winning Director of Sharkwater and Revolution.  
" 150 000 000 sharks are killed each year and scientists only account for 70 000 000 of those, there are 80 000 000 sharks that are killed every year and nobody knows why nor where they are going, but WE figured this out.... and if we bring this to the public, things will change."

Rob Stewart

Sharkwater: Extinction (2018) is a thrilling and inspiring action packed journey that follows 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.

Sharkwater, Rob’s first film, brought the devastating issue of shark finning used in shark fin soup to the world stage. His multi award-winning film changed laws and public policy worldwide, created hundreds of conservation groups. Today more than 90 countries have banned shark finning or the trade of shark products.  Even so, Stewart finds sharks are still being fished to extinction.

Sharkwater: Extinction continues the adventure across four continents, as Rob travels through the oceans to investigate the corruption behind a multi-billion dollar industry. The crew goes through some of the world’s most dangerous fishing ports run by international crime organizations that have infiltrated the fishing industry.

Rob’s second film, Revolution, continued his quest to save sharks and the oceans. Revolution was the first feature film to platform the devastating effects of Ocean Acidification.  Climate change was well known, but scientists were just realizing the effects would be much worse than ever imagined. We were in danger of losing the coral reefs, and potentially the entire ocean ecosystem, which gives us 60% of our oxygen. Sharks, the top predator controlling the fish populations below them and the plankton that give us our oxygen, were being fished to extinction in an ecosystem they have controlled for 400 million years.
