This movie called the Devil's Teeth is about a retired urchin diver. Well done video in my book. The name of the movie is for the islands nick name not the sharks.
The interesting part of the islands which is a National Sanctuary (Humans other than scientists are not allowed to touch the islands), is that in the past we humans trashed the place literally. A ship with hundreds of thousands of gallons of bunker oil sank outside the Golden Gate and still releases oil sometimes. They also dumped radio active material and all kinds of waste from the military and shipyards in barrels that have now deteriorated to almost nothing leaving the contaminants un-contained. During the gold rush the bird eggs were harvested for food to the point there were no future generations of birds. Of course the otters and seals were also obliterated. Whales...well there were expert hunters present.
Today it has all changed and the islands are now teaming with life, and have made a remarkable recovery to pretty close to pre-human intervention. With everything around the islands being part of the marine sanctuary, everything should continue to thrive for years to come.
