Follow biologist Alex Morton as she unravels the mysteries of BC’s declining salmon stocks using some of the world’s top fish labs. What she uncovers will surprise anyone who cares about our fish and all that depends on them.
This 70-minute documentary film, Salmon Confidential, which was screened in Kitimat, BC on Friday, February 23, 2013, documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome roadblocks thrown up by government agencies, and brings imperative information to the public in time to save BC’s wild salmon.
This issue is at a critical point as British Columbia, Canada is rapidly losing salmon. Many of the salmon eating northern resident orcas are failing to return to their traditional salmon feeding grounds in the inside waters of Vancouver island because of the lack of fish. This issue can't wait.
Take the time to watch this film, educate yourself, and then contact (letters, emails) MLA candidates in your riding & party leaders. Tell them that in order to get your vote, you want them to stand up for the wild salmon economy (which includes wilderness tourism, first nations food fishing, sports fishing and commercial fishing) and remove the farms from the migration routes of wild salmon.
If this film concerns you, it is crucial that politicians hear your voice, and loudly. BC needs it’s wild salmon and it will be an important issue to voters this upcoming election. Since it appears that Adrian Dix is most likely the next leader of BC and the one who most needs to understand this issue, he can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
