The world €™s shark population is in trouble for a sad, simple reason: shark fin soup. And although it €™s illegal, poachers have been targeting Florida €™s biannual migration of blacktip sharks.
Marine biologist Doc Ford needs some assistance protecting the sharks and enlists the help of three kids €•Luke, Maribel and Sabina. Luke is brand-new to Florida from the Midwest; sisters Maribel and Sabina have only recently arrived from Cuba €•and all three feel like fish out of water. It €™s going to take some convincing for them to work as a team and to recognize in themselves the courage, wisdom and tenacity that Doc sees in them.
Together they form Sharks, Inc. and are given an important assignment: to set out each day on their small fishing boat in hopes of tagging sharks for Doc €™s research €•and to stay away €•far away €•from any possible poachers in the area.
The trio certainly isn €™t looking for trouble, but when they come face to face with danger, survival requires them to rely on each of their own unique gifts, and especially on one another.
