Short Film: SHARKS OF THE SEA OF CORTES: A LOST TREASURE?, 27min., Mexico

Directed by James Ketchum
Just 30 years ago, dense, swirling schools of hammerheads and
giant manta rays made the Sea of Cortés – El Golfo de California – a
global diving mecca, and created the city of La Paz’ flourishing
tourism economy. But in the 1990s, indiscriminate issuance of
shark fishing permits allowed multinational fleets to “strip mine”
them in critical habitats, including nurseries. This triggered a
cascade of collapse among shark populations, so local fisheries
and tourism plummeted. But today, scientists and fishermen work
closely together to restore and protect this priceless marine
ecosystem.
