The Pristine Coast
From film maker Scott Renyard, The Pristine Coast explores the connection between the plummeting wild fish stocks in British Columbia to the emergence of disease spreading salmon farms on Canada’s Sunshine Coast. Salmon farming was hailed as BC’s gold rush during the economic recession of the 1980’s. Since then, biologists like Alexandra Morton and the first nation Canadians that owe their heritage and survival to wild salmon have been fighting the government to prevent an ecological disaster. Withstanding aggressive foreign business, corrupt governments and false promises, these conservationists expose antibiotic resistant disease, parasitic lice infestation, inhumane farming practices, climate change and looming extinction across species. This film is not only relevant for a community in crisis, but has Global implications but for the animal kingdom and the future of the human race.
