Wereld van de Haai - Acknowledgement

Wereld van de Haai (World of Sharks) began as an inspirational idea by a small group of people whose main desire was to broaden peoples knowledge of the ocean, it’s marine life and especially that of the perilous life expectancy of our sharks. We would like to acknowledge the following companies and foundations for the use of their databases. Many of these organizations have dedicated their lives to help preserve our oceans and all of its marine life.

​We would also like to commemorate Rob Stewart who died tragically during a diving accident whilst filming a sequel to Sharkwater; Shark Extinction. Rob fought tirelessly during his short period of life against the illegal shark fin trade. You can read more about Rob on our website.
