Tourism vs Shark Fishery – Project Hiu

-

This week’s video comes from shark conservationist Madison Stewart.  In 2018, she led a small team lead to one of Indonesia’s largest shark fisheries with one intention, to befriend a shark fisherman. In a world where shark stocks are collapsing, changing generations of shark fishermen who fish for survival is essential, but nearly impossible. There is one trade however, that can rival the multi-million-dollar shark trade, one trade that can save sharks and people, a trade that thrives on something that won’t go extinct, tourism. This short film depicts the initial journey of project Hiu (project shark) to find a shark fisherman among the fleet, willing to let us onto his boat and pay him for tourism, distracting the boat from its usual shark fishing trip.
