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.

Excellent, well done. It's not one of those "life of a salmon" documentaries we have seen on TV many times, but a well-presented and well-edited movie that both shows and explains the difficulties presented to salmon by the many dams on the Columbia River system, and the well-intentioned, but flawed, attempts to mitigate those difficulties. And, it brings us uptodate on some hopeful changes that are underway.

This is a great movie that documents the issues with the salmon that man has created.

The Blu-Ray quality is excellent, movie is nicely produced, nicely narrated and gives mulitple view points.

Highly recommended

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.
