Finally - a documentary which raises the awareness of the cruelty of the fining process contributing to the extinction of sharks.

This documentary released last year has won 31 International Awards, is filmed by Canadian Rod Sterwart. An experienced diver and underwater photographer (so jealous), Sterwart set out to film a documentary on the declining shark population but instead uncovered an underground Sharkfining operation in Costa Rica operated by the taiwanese mafia.

There is a interview transcript featured on the website Sharkwater site with an opinion I strongly agree with - no one wants to save sharks, people are afraid of them. So very true when you consider the number of times a news coverage of a dangerous shark makes headlines and by doing so play off people's fears.

The trailer looks bloody awesome - better see where I get my hands on this DVD
