Nature: Salmon - Running the Gauntlet

Regarded by naturalists as one of the greatest environmental tragedies of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the systematic depletion of Pacific salmon populations seemed to call for a swift and immediate solution.

This both raised serious ethical and moral dilemmas, and gave rise to a bizarre situation where the majority of consumed salmon were bred in laboratories and/or raised in tanks.

Nature: Salmon - Running the Gauntlet explores the many facets of this complex and often murky situation.
