This film examines the present state of the fishery on the Skeena River and the many questions it faces. From the perspective of First Nations, commercial, outfitter, environmental and government interests, it investigates the socioeconomic impact of the declining fish stocks and presents the Skeena River as an inspiration and a model of how rivers, fish and people might co-exist.
