Beautiful, moving, agonising, inspiring, horrific...

A simply fantastic piece of film making exposing the cruelty with which we exploit the oceans and one of our most spectacular and misunderstood animals, highlighting the apparent inevitability of the demise of the shark and the fact that it is us that will pay the ultimate price.

Beautifully shot in HD with fantastic underwater sequences interspersed with upsetting footage of our abuse of these graceful creatures. Wonderful sound track, great editing and a gripping story will keep you on the edge of your seat and change your view of these creatures and, perhaps, of the way we abuse the sea.

This is not a Blue Planet. It is a conservation film rather than a natural history documentary so expect to listen as well as watch.

Blu-Ray is well worth having, but buy it anyway even in "normal" definition.

As important as "An Inconvenient Truth". A must have film.

This is a must see documentary and is so much more than a documentary.
I was fortunate to see this movie whilst on holiday in the US. It is the most amazing film I have ever seen, I don't think I been so affected by a film, nor has a film ever compelled me to get out there and do something to help like this film did. I am in total awe of what Rob has achieved with Sharkwater and hopeful that this is the beginning of an amazing crusade to save the sharks.
This was the most beautifully shot piece of cinematography I have ever had the fortune to watch. Even so, this beauty was nothing compared to the utterly tragic and desperately moving discoveries the film documented. Rob Stewart cannot be thanked and praised enough for this film and it marks the beginning of something crucial. This must be stopped and this film is what is needed to educate and amaze people. I cannot wait to watch it again and encourage everyone I know to watch it. It literally changes you

Congratulations to you Rob and to all your colleagues. I would urge EVERYONE to buythis movie and I will certainly be encouraging all of my friends to do so.

I found this dvd shocking as I did not know that sharks were under such extreme threat from us. The shark fin industry is a multi-billion dollar business, most of it being fuelled by Asia. I simply did not know how much chaos this industry has created for sharks, and the only 2 save havens left for sharks in the world are not even safe. I was impressed by the guy on this dvd who fights to save the sharks from all the over-fishing and was amazed by the lengths he was willing to go to to try and protect the sharks, often in vain unfortunately. He gets arrested and well as gets on the wrong side of different mafias who are often involved with the illegal fishing in Galapagos and Costa Rica. It seems like he is often fighting a losing battle but never gives up and risks his life and freedom to try and save the sharks from the mass slaughter. It is disturbing to watch some of the scenes as they show fisherman cutting the fins and tails off of sharks then throwing them overboard to sink to the bottom and drown. It makes humans look like savages with no feeling or emapthy for other living beings. It really is horrendous! I would recommend this to anyone who likes to know the issues of the animal world and seeks the truth instead of hiding from it. A really well made documentary.

"Sharkwater" is a fascinating Canadian documentary featuring the scuba diver Rob Stewart and the controversial environmentalist activist Paul Watson, the leader of the Sea Shepherd organization. Together, Stewart and Watson want to save - wait for it - the sharks!

I've heard of people who want to save whales or dolphins, but this is the first time I encounter people who actually want to save sharks. I didn't even know sharks were particularly threatened. Shark the hunter, man the hunted, right?

Not so, according to "Sharkwater". 90% of the shark population is already gone, and several species are threatened with extinction, including the peaceful whale shark (the world's largest fish). The documentary even claims that the complete extinction of sharks might affect the global climate, since shark predation stops other fish from overconsuming plankton. And plankton is necessary to keep the climate in balance.

I'm not sure if I buy that particular argument, or the claim that most sharks are pretty harmless to humans, but it's pretty clear from the documentary that all sharks are threatened by overfishing from the absurd shark finning industry. Conservations efforts are hampered by a variety of factors: shark fin soup and other shark-derived products are part of East Asian culture, the oceans are difficult to control, and many people don't like sharks anyway!

The most interesting part of "Sharkwater" features Paul Watson and his notorious activist group Sea Shepherd. I've heard of Sea Shepherd already 25 years ago, when they were literally attacking whaling ships in Iceland and Norway. Sea Shepherd has always been considered a dangerous extremist group.

Or so I imagined.
