Ennerdale’s Arctic Charr attempt to swim upriver to spawn. But the water’s acidic, and nest materials are blocked upstream. This film tells the story of people working together to save one of Britain's rarest fish from extinction.
Andy was the first person to film Arctic Charr in England, back in 2011. A couple of months ago, we went back to tell the whole story. Filmed over three weeks in November 2013, ARCTIC CHARR includes never-before-seen night vision shots of Arctic Charr mating.
ARCTIC CHARR: RELICS OF THE ICE AGE is the first collaboration between SubSeaTV's Andy Jackson and Jackie Daly, who share a vision to make story-driven wildlife, shipwreck, and underwater films.
