The Lost Fish
One of the Pacific Northwest's oldest fish is disappearing, and along with it the sacred place it holds among many Native American Indian Tribes. For a species that has squeezed through most of the earth's great extinctions, the plight of Pacific Lamprey may be a signal of ecological distress.
The Lost Fish is Freshwaters Illustrated's feature film - collaborative with the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission and the US Fish & Wildlife Service - that captures the fight to save Pacific Lamprey in the Columbia Basin, and the passion and determination of those working to ensure their survival.
