Editorial Reviews

This film will investigate the parallel stories of collapsing Pacific salmon populations and how biologists and engineers have become instruments in audacious experiments to replicate every stage of the fish s life cycle. Each of our desperate efforts to save salmon has involved replacing their natural cycle of reproduction and death with a radically manipulated life history. Our once great runs of salmon are now conceived in laboratories, raised in tanks, driven in trucks, and farmed in pens. Here we go beyond the ongoing debate over how to save an endangered species. In its exposure of a wildly creative, hopelessly complex, and stunningly expensive approach to managing salmon, the film reveals one of the most ambitious plans ever conceived for taking the reins of the planet.

This film does a good job detailing some of the challenges facing maintaining salmon stocks that are challenged by giant hydroelectric dams, but it is sort of depressing to watch.

I bought the video to help my young sons develop an appreciation for the fascinating life cycle of salmon and their important role in many ecosystems. It does this in sort of a backhanded and depressing way.

My sons definitely learned a lot about salmon, but they did not really like the video much because of its downbeat tone.

Informative and interesting video of the importance of salmon, and obstacles that they must overcome including man made and predators. This point becomes very clear as the film explains how much money various governmental agencies are spending to save the salmon. Even if you don't live in an area where the salmon spawn, you will enjoy learning about them, their challenges and their importance to us.

Format: Blu-ray
Judge David Johnson, DVD Verdict- The 60-minute documentary examines the complex conservation efforts that include something called Juvenile Fish Transportation as well as the salmon version of in-vitro fertilization. Pulling back, we also see how it is necessary for the habitat to have a viable salmon population. It's a nice package and certainly educational; I learned much about a fish that I knew very little about, except the standard-issue "swimming in the opposite direction" stuff. Most stunning was the material looking at the decades of failed attempts to save the fish that backfired. Yikes.

A no-frills Blu-ray that accomplishes what it needs to in the tech department: the 1.85:1, 1080i transfer may fall a degree or two short for purists, but it looks great, clean and crisp, especially when it handles the underwater salmon scenes. The orthodox Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mix pushes dialogue and little else. No extras.
