Biologist and filmmaker tour BC with controversial new documentary

Media Advisory

Below is a list of upcoming screenings of Salmon Confidential in BC communities. You can also watch Salmon Confidential online at http://salmonconfidential.ca.

For more details about each screening date and location, see calendar at http://www.salmonaresacred.org/calendar.  

Salmon Confidential filmmaker, Twyla Roscovich, follows biologist Dr. Alexandra Morton as she unravels the mysteries of BC’s declining salmon stocks using some of the world's top fish labs. What she uncovers should shock anyone who cares about our fish and all that depend on them. This 70-minute film documents Morton’s journey as she attempts to overcome roadblocks thrown up by government agencies and bring critical information to the public in time to save BC's wild salmon. Learn about our changing coastal ecology, grassroots science-based activism, and the inner workings of government agencies tasked with overseeing our fish and the safety of our food supply.
