Lost at Sea takes the viewer on
an epic journey through the oceanic kingdom of the
Atlantic Salmon -the king of fish - 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,
using the latest DNA technology, 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.
This film tells the most complete story of the life
of Atlantic salmon - something not possible before.
