The Film:

Salmon Secrets: Clayoquot Action presents a Jérémy MATHIEU film

Fish farming is pushing wild salmon to the brink of extinction. The federal government has promised to remove fish farms from BC waters by 2025, but now industry is pushing back with false solutions. Join Clayoquot Action’s fish farm watchdog program as a team of underwater cinematographers investigates an “experimental” fish farm near Tofino. What they find surprises them, and spells potential disaster for wild salmon. Featuring marine biologist and bestselling author Alexandra Morton, and Kwakwabalas -Chief Ernest Alfred, traditional and elected leader of the 'Na̱mg̱is First Nation, who document the successful resurgence of salmon after the removal of fish farms from the Broughton Area and Discovery Islands.
