Of Fish and Foe
Director – Andy Heathcote
BBFC Classification – 12A
The Pullars are the last family to use traditional fishing methods for their farming of wild Atlantic salmon off the north west coast of Scotland. When these fishing methods include killing seals, the salmon’s natural predators, conflict erupts. Animal activist groups Sea Shepherd and Hunt Saboteurs oppose the Pullars at every turn. Challenging preconceptions, this documentary puts modern environmentalism under the microscope.
