The film is being screened at the Port Mouton Recreation Centre at the same time.
It will also be livestreamed from the website, www.salmonwars.com, beginning at 7 p.m.
Salmon Wars is a special documentary presentation of The Green Interview, written and hosted by Silver Donald Cameron, directed and produced by Chris Beckett. It takes you with Silver Donald Cameron as he travels from one end of Nova Scotia to the other, talking to lobster fishermen, conservationists, anglers and others about open net salmon aquaculture and their opposition to expansion plans—while government officials and industry proponents also have their say.
As far as Cameron knows, Salmon Wars is a truly unique production.
“Salmon Wars is 100 per cent citizen-funded, and is being released under a creative commons license so that it will be available for free everywhere, with no royalties or profits,” says Cameron. “I know of no other documentary production that’s been financed and distributed this way.”
“Salmon Wars sheds a revealing light on the consequences of open net salmon aquaculture,” says Dr. Susanna Fuller, Marine Coordinator with the Ecology Action Centre, which is a member of the Atlantic Coalition for Aquaculture Reform. “It’s a must-see for everyone concerned about the health of our coastal ecosystems, the survival of wild Atlantic salmon and the future of Nova Scotia’s lobster fisheries.”
After the premiere screenings on June 13, Salmon Wars will be available for download at www.salmonwars.com
