An Entirely Synthetic Fish : how rainbow trout beguiled America and overran the world by Anders HalversonAnders Halverson provides an exhaustively researched and grippingly rendered account of the rainbow trout and why it has become the most commonly stocked and controversial freshwater fish in the United States. Discovered in the remote waters of northern California, rainbow trout have been artificially propagated and distributed for more than 130 years by government officials eager to present Americans with an opportunity to get back to nature by going fishing. Proudly dubbed "an entirely synthetic fish" by fisheries managers, the rainbow trout has been introduced into every state and province in the United States and Canada and to every continent except Antarctica, often with devastating effects on the native fauna. Halverson examines the paradoxes and reveals a range of characters, from nineteenth-century boosters who believed rainbows could be the saviors of democracy to twenty-first-century biologists who now seek to eradicate them from waters around the globe. Ultimately, the story of the rainbow trout is the story of our relationship with the natural world- how it has changed and how it startlingly has not.

Fishing Through the Apocalypse : an angler's adventures in the 21st century by Matthew L. MillerWhat does the future hold for fish and the people who pursue them? Fishing Through the Apocalypse explores that question through a series of fishing stories about the reality of the sport in the 21st century. Matthew Miller (director of science communications for The Nature Conservancy) explores fishing that might be considered dystopian: joining anglers as they stick their lines into trash-filled urban canals, or visiting farm ponds where you can catch giant, endangered fish for a fee. But it isn't all bleak. When it comes to fishing, the other part of the story is this: a cadre of anglers is looking to right past wrongs, to return native species, to remove dams, to appreciate the unappreciated fish, to clean our waters and protect public lands. As an angler and conservationist, Matt removes any and all preconceived notions about what it means to fish in the 21st century in order to see the different visions of the future that exist right here, right now.

In each episode, a local trout and fly fishing expert shows us how trout fishing is not just about casting and hauling in - it's a hunt, where you have to know the rivers, read the water, steal upon the fish, put the line onto the water and watch how the fish moves towards the surface to snap the fly.

One Man's Fight to Save the North Atlantic Salmon: Orri VigfussonThis episode of The Green Interview features Orri Vigfusson, an Icelandic businessman, environmentalist and “green capitalist” with an ambitious goal to save the dwindling North Atlantic salmon. To this end he has sought ownership of every commercial salmon-fishing license in order to retire them, and ultimately to close the entire commercial Atlantic salmon fishery. Over the past 17 years Vigfusson has systematically bought and shut down all but 15 per cent of the world’s commercial North Atlantic salmon fishing licenses. In this interview, he explains how these methods have won him the respect of the commercial salmon fisherman whose fishing licenses he is buying and “retiring.” (58 minutes)
River Ways: A Dispute Over Fish in IdahoWhat do you do when the fish disappear? That’s the question haunting Idaho. It’s become the center of a bitter debate. The solution—removing four dams on the Snake River—is as controversial as the problem. It could be the only way to save the fish, but it also has dire consequences for the 50,000 people who depend on the dams for their livelihood. On one side are the commercial fishermen who want the dams removed. On the other side the farmers say removing the dams will be the end of them. As this documentary points out, the solution will be a disaster for one side or the other. (60 minutes)
