The latest DiveFilm Podcast Video, Episode 37, is now live. “Shark Fin Frontier” by Shawn Heinrichs is a very powerful film that portrays the tragic decimation of sharks and shark populations by humans and the shark fin industry. Beautiful images of lush tropical marine settings are juxtaposed with the all-too-common scene below the surface of dead sharks littering the bottom, their fins cut off to feed an insatiable market for shark fin.
As most here on the video forum are aware, in addition to being a fantastic underwater filmmaker, Shawn is also a conservation forum moderator here at Wetpixel, and a regular contributor to the video forums.
