Dalhousie Study Supports Sharkwater Film's Message

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2007) -

Attention: News, Science, Environment, and Entertainment Editors

A report published by Dalhousie University researchers on March 29th has confirmed what Rob Stewart's award-winning documentary, Sharkwater, recently brought to light: sharks are being overfished internationally, thus disturbing the world's ocean ecosystems as a direct result.

"I am pleased the importance of saving sharks is starting to get the attention it needs," said Stewart who has been documenting and crusading for sharks for the last five years, culminating in the recent release of Sharkwater.

"This report supports Sharkwater's message that keeping sharks alive is critical to sustaining life in the oceans and on Earth."

See Sharkwater and see first-hand what Dalhousie's study just confirmed.

Sharkwater opened on March 23 rd in theatres across Canada, setting records with the largest opening weekend of any Canadian documentary in history.

Rob Stewart is available for comment.
