The Eel River in Northern California is arguably the best opportunity for wild salmon recovery on the entire west coast of the USA. The river and salmon have weathered decades of over fishing, abusive logging, catastrophic floods, droughts and a hydro power dam that diverts water out of the basin.
Today the Eel’s recovering wild salmon compete for water with the region’s underground multi-billion dollar cannabis economy and the multi-billion dollar wine industries of Sonoma and Mendocino.
This film is rooted in the belief that we can live symbiotically with our catchments and encourage both a rivers recovery and economic future.
