What’s the price of an ecosystem?

Fish hatcheries are controversial – and with good reason. ARTIFISHAL documents the destructive effect of fish farming on the population of wild fish and their habitats, and reveals the fundamentally counter-productive consequences of these efforts to manipulate nature. Director Josh Murphy takes us on a journey from Northern Norway to the west coast of the US to capture the tragic consequences of humanity’s lack of ability to learn from mother nature and work within her limits. This film will make you think twice before ordering your next sashimi.

ARTIFISHAL will also be screened in the University Aula on Monday 30 September at 16:00. Read more about the programme in the University Aula // Book tickets to screenings in the University Aula
