Artifishal

Director:  Josh “Bones” Murphy

Premiered at 2019 Tribeca Film Festival

Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them.  Exploring the high cost – ecological, financial, and cultural – of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction, it explores a variety of important issues: wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our loss of faith in nature.

The film traces the impact of fish hatcheries and farms, and the extraordinary amount of American taxpayer dollars wasted on an industry that hinders wild fish recovery, pollutes our rivers, and contributes to the problem it claims to solve. 

Artifishal also dives beneath the surface of the open-water fish farm controversy, as citizens work to stop the damage done to public waters and our remaining wild salmon.
