One night only – Patagonia’s Artifishal screening at the University of Victoria

Artifishal examines the harmful effects hatcheries and fish farms have on wild salmon populations, and as a result how ecosystems and our way of life is affected as a whole.

Join us on Tuesday, August 27, at 7:00 pm for a film screening of Patagonia’s documentary, Artifishal, at the University of Victoria’s Cinecenta theatre located in the Student Union Building.

Artifishal examines the harmful effects hatcheries and fish farms have on wild salmon populations, and as a result how ecosystems and our way of life is affected as a whole. We are working to secure a future for wild salmon and the coastal environment we share with them.

Following the film there will be a Q&A session with Aaron Hill, Executive Director of Watershed Watch Salmon Society, and Misty MacDuffee, Raincoast’s Wild Salmon Program Director.

Aaron is an ecologist specializing in freshwater and coastal ecosystems, focusing mostly on salmon habitat and fisheries. Currently, he is working on implementing Wild Salmon Policy and ecological sustainability in BC energy development.

Misty has been working on salmon and killer whale conservation as a biologist for more than 15 years. In addition to her scientific research, Misty participates in various processes with government and industry on wild salmon management and Southern Resident killer whale conservation.

Support our mobile lab, Tracker!

Our new mobile lab will enable the Healthy Waters Program to deliver capacity, learning, and training to watershed-based communities. We need your support to convert the vehicle and equip it with lab instrumentation. This will allow us to deliver insight into pollutants of concern in local watersheds, and contribute to solution-oriented practices that protect and restore fish habitat.
