Sea of Shadows Poster


The Aquarium of the Pacific will host a screening of Sea of Shadows, a documentary from National Geographic Documentary Films and winner of the Sundance audience award, followed by a panel discussion featuring ocean conservation experts and one of the filmmakers.

When Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers join forces to poach the rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez, their methods threaten marine life in the region, including the most elusive and endangered whale species on Earth, the vaquita porpoise.

Sea of Shadows follows a team of scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists, and undercover agents as well as the Mexican Navy as they work to save the last remaining vaquitas.

Panelists:

  • José A. Zertuche-González, researcher, Universidad Autonoma de Baja California Ensenada
  • Matthew Podolsky, Sea of Shadows filmmaker
  • Kim Thompson, director, Seafood for the Future
