"This companion volume to the film Sharkwater provides a portrait of sharks and the underwater ecosystem in which they live, taking you into the most shark-rich waters of the world. More than 200 photographs revel in the beauty of this remarkable animal and expose the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world's shark populations in the marine reserves of Cocos Island, Costa Rica, and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador." "The filmmaker tells the story of his efforts to protect sharks, teaming up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges, forcing them to flee for their lives." "Through it all, Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey, and how, despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions, they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed."--BOOK JACKET.Stewart, Rob is the author of 'Sharkwater', published 2007 under ISBN 9781552639719 and ISBN 1552639711.
