“Creating the Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation was the commitment of our family and Rob’s many friends and supporters to honour his legacy. Rob would be so proud of this milestone and the projects the Foundation has underway to protect sharks and our oceans,” said Brian Stewart, Rob Stewart Sharkwater Foundation (RSSF) Board of Directors.

Like many people in the conservation community, Rob influenced my career, to put it simply,” said Lana Brandt, RSSF Executive Director. “I met Rob shortly after Sharkwater released and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to join efforts with him over the years on sustainability issues including improved seafood labelling and raising awareness around shark fin soup.
