The Silver in the Sea

A Herring Story

“In March of the past few years, ecologyst has sent a film crew to document the last remaining herring fishery in the Salish Sea. In this new short film, The Silver in the Sea, we bear witness to the severe mismanagement of the fishery of this foundational species, and explore what will happen if we do not let the herring swim freely long enough to rebound from centuries of overfishing. The film is directed by Cam William MacArthur from ecologyst, Deirdre Leowinata from Pacific Wild, and Locky MacLean. It is produced by ecologyst in partnership with Conservancy Hornby Island, Pacific Wild, and SeaLegacy.”
