Patagonia film explores the future of wild fish

Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.

The film poses a number of provocative questions

• What’s The Difference Between Wild, Hatchery And Farmed Fish?
• Don’t We Need Hatcheries To Make Up For Habitat Loss?
• How Can Putting More Fish In The River Result In Fewer Fish To Catch?
• Who Pays For And Manages Fish Hatcheries?
• What About Tribal Fishing Rights?
• If We’re Serious About Helping Wild Salmon And Orcas Survive In Puget Sound, What’s The Solution?
• But Wouldn’t More Hatchery Fish Provide Immediate Relief For Starving Orcas?
• How Can We Help Klamath River Wild Salmon Recover After The Dams Are Removed?
• Can I Eat Salmon Without Supporting Hatcheries And Net-Pen Fish Farms?
• How Quickly Can Wild Fish Recover When We Restore Habitat And Remove Hatcheries And Dams?
• Won’t Fewer Hatcheries Mean Fewer Fishing Opportunities?

“The road to extinction is paved with good intentions.”
