Returning each year, salmon have been a significant part of Campbell River,from the Indigenous people’s ancient use, to present day sport fishing and eco-tourism. Most people in the world only know salmon as something on a menu or in a can. The people of Campbell River are lucky to know salmon more intimately. In fact the town has been crowned as the Salmon Capital of the World. This film will look at the local First Nations people’s usage of salmon throughout the ages, the rise of sport fishing, tourism ventures such as whale and bear watching, commercial fishing, enhancement, aquaculture and much more. We aim to create a place of dialogue and intrigue and even a little conflict. The goal of this film is to showcase how, throughout time, salmon have been the common thread running through the town, and how they hopefully will be long into the future.
