Tilikum is well known for killing his trainer at SeaWorld Orlando in 2010. When Tilikum died, SeaWorld said it was ‘deeply saddened’ by the killer whale’s death, saying Tilikum had suffered serious health issues but did not give any cause of death.

Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth.

Blackfish Blackfish, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, documents the history of Tilikum, a killer whale with a killing streak. Several ex-SeaWorld trainers, eyewitnesses, and a former whale catcher share their perspectives on killer whales in captivity and the attacks; their viewpoint is that the whales have undergone psychosis due to poor living conditions and treatment. Killer whales should not be held captive in their current conditions. In an early scene, a former whale catcher explains the emotional trauma he had when he caught whales such as Tilikum.
