With over 400 species of sharks, covering nearly every oceanic environment around the world, these cartilaginous fish are often pivotal, apex predators within their particular food chain.  Highly evolved to be ultimate predators, it is no wonder that we continue to find sharks both fearsome and fascinating!

Sharks are some of the ocean's most infamous, feared, and fascinating inhabitants, and a favorite subject for many divers and underwater cinematographers. Yet shark populations are on a decline worldwide, with estimates of populations dropping by greater than 90% over the past few decades. Decline of the top predators significantly impact the ecology of the ocean. With up to 73 million sharks killed every year to support the global shark fin industry for shark fin soup, the threat to shark populations is immense. In this spectacular video, witness the diversity of shark species from the tame interaction between man and Great White to the grandeur of the whale shark, this video is credence to the importance, beauty and fragility of sharks.
