Atlantic Salmon Trust Christmas Drinks & Lost at Sea Film

12 Dec

Join us at the Mayfair Curzon Cinema, London on the 12th December for Christmas Drinks. This evening event includes the launch of the Moray Firth Acoustic Tracking Project and London Premier of the film Atlantic Salmon: Lost at Sea


Acoustic Tracking Project
In 2017 the AST recruited Dr. Matt Newton as Coordinator for the Acoustic Tracking Project. This project, which will use the most advanced tracking technology, aims to determine the level and causes of mortality in salmon smolts as they migrate to sea and in the marine environment. Dr. Newton will present to you a major salmon tracking project proposed for the Moray Firth to take place in 2019. This exciting project will include a number of important Scottish Salmon Rivers and track salmon further than ever before in UK waters and will be a pilot for work that can be developed on the West Coast to better understand the interactions of wild salmonids and fish farms.


Atlantic Salmon – Lost at Sea (THE FILM)
Lost at Sea takes the viewer on an epic journey through the oceanic kingdom of the Atlantic Salmon in an attempt to unravel the mystery of their life at sea. Populations of salmon are plummeting to critical levels, even going extinct in some southern rivers. Despite conservation efforts worldwide, populations continue to fall. The cause is mortality at sea. For the very first time, scientists are able to track the salmon from the rivers, through the estuaries and into the vast North Atlantic and back again in hopes of finding an answer before it is too late. Feature length film directed and produced by Deirdre Brennan, filmed by award winning wildlife cameraman Rick Rosenthal (The Blue Planet) and narrated by actor Gabriel Byrne.
