Biologist and filmmaker tour BC with new salmon documentary

Dr. Alexandra Morton to visit Agassiz area on Saturday

A film about salmon that is sweeping the province will be shown in Harrison Mills.

Salmon Confidential, by Twyla Roscovich, follows biologist Dr. Alexandra Morton as she unravels the mysteries of B.C.’s declining salmon stocks using some of the world’s top fish labs

Morton and Roscovich are touring B.C. throughout April and May, to show and discuss the new documentary.

The 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.

Salmon Confidential will be shown on Apr. 20 at 4 p.m. at Harrison Mills Community Hall, 1995 School Road.
