The Forgotten Salmon

When settlers first arrived at Lake Ontario, they found Atlantic Salmon there in quite prodigious numbers. However by the 1890's with gross overfishing and the industrialisation of the landscape man had completely wiped them out. This film charts a modern day conservation program that is trying to re-introduce a genetically related version of the species back into the lake and its river system. It is beautifully shot and combines historical archive with testimony from scientists, conservationists and anglers, all trying to re-establish The Forgotten Salmon.

I love the passion of the individuals in this film who’ve dedicated their lives to bringing back a species that once thrived in this watershed. I live in Rochester NY, and have been privileged and fortunate to have seen what the efforts of everyone in the conversation and fishing community have done for not only different species of fish but the environment. I recommend this video to anyone that’s young and interested in fishing for salmon and trout, those who care about our environment, and those just interested in learning how unique the great lake of Lake Ontario is.
