There are grave concerns about the migratory fish of British Columbia. A new film looks at this issue of Skeena salmon and steelhead.
From the filmmaker:
“From traditional subsistence fishing economies to commercial fishing and canneries to double hand fly fishing, guide outfits and eco-tourism to present day fishing closures in the Pacific Northwest. What does the future of salmon fishing in Northwestern BC look like? Meet all the stakeholders of fishing in NWBC today and learn about the cultural, subsistence, spiritual and economic significance of fish to each user group. Visit old canneries gone ghost town. Hear from First Nations, Commercial Fishermen, Guides, Recreational Fishermen, Fish Hatcheries and Eco-Tourism Leaders. Follow the timeline of fishing economies and practices in the Skeena River and ask yourself if its possible for all the stakeholders in the Skeena to put their differences aside and put the fish first.”
