Atlantic Salmon – Lost at Sea, followed by discussion
Thursday, May 10
Introduction by the film’s producer, Deirdre Brennan, followed by a question-and-answer session with Jonathan Carr, Vice President of Research and Environment, Atlantic Salmon Federation
Narrated by Irish actor and films director Gabriel Byrne, Lost at Sea takes the viewer on an epic journey through the oceanic kingdom of the Atlantic salmon–king of fish–in an attempt to unravel the mystery of their life at sea. Populations of salmon are plummeting to critical levels, even going extinct in some southern rivers. Despite conservation efforts worldwide, populations continue to fall. The cause is mortality at sea.
