Against All Odds

Southern California Steelhead: Against All Odds is a documentary about one of California's most magnificent and endangered native fish species. Once numbering in the tens of thousands, these resilient fish are now on the brink of extinction. Dams, development, water extraction, pollution and climate change have all taken their toll. However, these fish are not doomed to extinction and a small number of people can make a big difference in helping recover this iconic species. Please visit for more information on what CalTrout and it's partners are doing to help recover these beautiful fish.

O Tarpon Perdido

In November 1980, two fisherman caught something that they had never seen before.  A few photos are probably the only existing proof of the accidental capture of tarpon in Europe. Another one was caught in 1973, in Tejo River (Lisbon) but no photos exist, only a replica in the Museum Vasco da Gama in Lisbon.  Filmmaker Jose' Rodrigues leaves his hometown with a friend to try and catch a large tarpon on the other side of the Atlantic.  This is the trailer of the documentary "The Lost Tarpon."

Painting With Eels

Inspired by Gyotaku, a Japanese fish-printing art form popularized in the mid-1800s, artist and naturalist James Prosek created a series of pieces employing the nature-print technique. But instead of using the traditional large-scaled carp to make his art, Prosek decided to use a rather unusual fish as his creative tool: the eel.
