Event description
Artifishal is a film about the future of wild fish in our global community.

About this Event

From Patagonia:

"Artifishal is a film about wild rivers and wild fish that explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction. The film traces the impact of fish hatcheries, and the extraordinary amount of public money wasted on an industry that hinders wild fish recovery, pollutes our rivers and contributes to the problem it claims to solve. Artifishal also dives beneath the surface of the open-water fish farm controversy, as citizens work to stop the damage done to public waters and our remaining wild salmon."

Following the screening, Temple Office of Sustainability, together with the Department of Biology, will host a panel of experts to discuss the film, unpacking its message and determining potential steps for future action.

Featured panelists include:

  • Dr. Kolson Schossler, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Urban Studies, College of Liberal Arts
  • Dr. Patrick Murphy, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies and Associate Professor, Klein College of Media and Communication
  • Dr. Rob Jennings, Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, College of Science and Technology
