Patagonia’s Artifishal documents 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.
Heart of the Fraser was created by Ken Ashley, director of the BCIT Rivers Institute, and produced by NERV Productions. The film aims to educate viewers about the tremendous ecological significance of the area known as the Heart of the Fraser or the “gravel reach”, the stretch of the Fraser between Hope and Mission. The habitats under threat in the Heart of the Fraser provide vital rearing habitat for young salmon from throughout the Fraser watershed as they migrate out to sea.
This Wild Salmon Film Night is brought to you in partnership with Wearabouts Clothing Co., and Patagonia. The event is by donation, with proceeds to Watershed Watch Salmon Society to support our efforts to defend and rebuild B.C. wild salmon.
