Tough actors in rough seas

(Starts at 19:55)

The vaquita, the world's smallest whale, is near extinction as its habitat is destroyed by Mexican cartels and Chinese mafia, who harvest the swim bladder of the totoaba fish, the so-called "cocaine of the sea." Environmental activists, Mexican navy and undercover investigators fight back against this illegal multi-million-dollar business in the documentary, "Sea of Shadows." Director Richard Ladkani talks with John about his film.
