The road to extinction is paved with good intentions
"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.
Interesting facts: According to "Artifishal", 280 billion artificially bred salmon are released into the Pacific and remote rivers every year (e.g. by plane) - so that professional and amateur fishermen can fish. Tax money used per fish: USD 68,000. The breeding and keeping of salmon changes their genetics so that they are only half as big as originally. The orcas, which live off the salmon, starve to death as a result, and their population has been drastically reduced as a result.
