Sharkwater extinction

Synopsis: 
Today more than 90 countries have banned shark finning or the trade of shark products, thanks to the work of filmmaker Rob Stewart, who shined a light on the devastating issue of shark finning, inspiring the creation of hundreds of conservation groups, changing laws and public policy worldwide. However, even with all the progress made, Rob found that sharks are still being fished to extinction. 100 – 150 million sharks are killed every year, including endangered species. Shark populations have dropped more than 90% in the last 40 years. Without the oceans’ main predator, marine ecosystems are being destroyed beyond repair.
