“I’ve visited salmon farms, read scientific articles, and interviewed the multi-billion-dollar industry’s advocates and detractors, but never have I encountered anything as graphic as the film Farmed Salmon Exposed by Canadian filmmaker Damien Gillis…The film in its entirety is positively gut-wrenching…Industry representatives said that the movie was one-sided…Farmed Salmon Exposed is one-sided. It’s the side of the industry the multi-national corporations don’t want us to see.” – The Atlantic
