Film Screening: Atlantic Salmon, Lost at Sea

by Deirdre Brennan


Narrated by Gabriel Byrne, Lost at Sea takes the viewer on an epic journey through the oceanic kingdom of the Atlantic Salmon - 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 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.

Run Time: 55 minutes


Deirdre Brennan is an Emmy award winning decorator for television, film and theatre. Her passion for wildlife and conservation led her to form Castletown Productions to make films about rare and endangered wildlife. Her first films, Bermuda’s Treasure Island & Sceillig and Bermuda, A Last Refuge highlight the amazing rediscovery of the once thought extinct Bermuda petrel or Cahow. Both films won awards at the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula. For the past 8 years she has traveled throughout the North Atlantic with an award winning team to tell the story of the disappearing wild Atlantic salmon. She partnered with the Atlantic Salmon Federation and other key international salmon organizations, salmon scientists and conservationists to make the film and hopes it will raise awareness and inspire audiences.
