Fusion's environmental correspondent Nicolas Ibarguen went free diving at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas with the ocean's top predator, sharks, and reflected on their recent struggles to survive.

Correction: The video states that 95% of shark species have disappeared. The correct statistic is that shark populations have declined up to 95%.
