Kafka in the salmon shoal

The wild salmon in Western Canada is disappearing, and scientists link the problem to diseases from salmon farming in the area. The Canadian government is suspiciously eager to halt their investigations, but marine biologist Alexandra Morton fights on and is aided by Norwegian scientists in her struggle to reveal the secrets of the fish farming industry. SALMON CONFIDENTIAL is a Kafkaesque detective story with a lot of money at stake. The fish farming industry does not want you to see this provoking documentary.
