ABOUT THE FILM

Dive beneath the surface of the fish farming debate in this refreshing exposé of the salmon-hatchery industry, which – along with open-water fish farms – are jeopardizing wild fish populations. You’ll never look at the salmon at your local grocer’s fish counter the same way after considering the high cost of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. Filmed in the Pacific Northwest, Norway and California – and featuring interviews with industry experts, conservationists and Indigenous activists – this call-to-arms documentary was named Best Film: Mountain Environment & Natural History at the Banff Centre Mountain Film & Book Festival.
