Patagonia- Salmon

"The road to extinction is paved with good intentions". This is a very apt statement and demonstrates that we as a society have failed to understand the natural world. The three areas examined in this film demonstrates the folly of salmon hatcheries and their effects on wild salmon survival, the damming of rivers which has interrupted the connectivity of important ecosystem services and the natural transfer of nutrients from oceans to freshwater catchments and the very substantial problems caused by open net pen salmon farms causing a cascade of effects through breeding with wild fish causing a rapid decline in genetic diversity to disease transfer to wider ecosystem and out of control parasitic infestations.
