July 27th Pascal proudly sponsors Sharkwater, new vessel for Fins Attached

We believe in the preservation of our world’s precious resources and that through the protection of the ocean’s apex predators marine ecosystem balance can be maintained for the benefit of all living things on earth

SHARKWATER Christening.

Fins Attached, is excited to announce the christening of the research expedition vessel, M/Y Sharkwater. The event will take place at the Bahia Mar Marina in Fort Lauderdale on July 27 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM, and is open to the public. Fins Attached is pleased to name the vessel Sharkwater, to honor the late filmmaker, Rob Stewart. Fins Attached has partnering with the Sharkwater Team to help finish the filming of Sharkwater Extinction.

Sharkwater is a 134 foot vessel that was originally built in Japan and used by Japanese fisheries, but now has been repurposed for the good of our oceans through the marine research and conservation mission of Fins Attached. Sharkwater will be a host to many different professions within the field. Scientists, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), marine science students, and documentary crews will have the opportunity to conduct fieldwork, and to achieve the objectives of Fins Attached. Scientists and film crews have already reached out to Fins Attached to be able to use Sharkwater over the next 12 months.

Gaining its own research expedition vessel will allow the nonprofit to expand its mission. Fins Attached works toward saving marine animal life, sharks in particular. “Shark populations are on the decline, and in some species, by over 95%. As Rob Stewart always said, saving our oceans is saving us.” Stated Alex Antoniou, Fins Attached founder.

“Being able to support research, conversation, and education of the apex predators of the sea is what Sharkwater is all about,” Antoniou continued.

“The Sharkwater team is proud to be a part of the Sharkwater research vessel and we know Rob Stewart was thrilled to have been involved in this significant initiative. It’s imperative we support the oceans and all its creatures and this boat will provide an excellent resource for researchers, scientists, and conservation groups for years to come,” began Brian and Sandy Stewart. “A giant thank you to Alex…and his organization Fins Attached for making this happen. As Rob said, ‘Conservation is the preservation of human life on earth and that above all else is worth fighting for,’ concluded Brian.

Event at the Florida Fair Grounds, Tampa.  Saturday July 9th, 2016 from 9am-5pm & Sunday July 10th, 2016 from 10am-5pm.
SharkCon is an event that brings those who love the ocean together for a weekend of education and the fun of a Comic Con. SharkCon has something for everyone who loves the ocean. In the inaugural SharkCon we had experts (Sylvia Earle, Robert Hueter, Stuart Cove, Ellen Prager, Jim Abernethy, and more) give presentations that entertained and enlightened our guest to the wonders and plights of the ocean. We had water sports clinics to teach our attendees how to paddle board, kayak, surf and fish. The show had over 80 vendors from different areas of ocean fun (scuba, live aboards, charters, clothing, fishing, books, jewelry, fossils, paddle boards, vacation destinations, and much more). We had exhibits from the Florida Aquarium (animals, fossils, educational material), Mote Marine Laboratory Mobile exhibit, Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo (animals), SeaWorld (fossils, examples, learning materials, shark photo options, more), Sharks from Ocean Creations, a shark ride(like the bucking horse), children’s coloring tables, the Mascot from the Clearwater Threshers, Aquaman, a showing of Jaws at the Tampa Theater, and even more. All of our guests left after having been entertained, educated, and with a renewed passion to protect our oceans.
