from industry and government lawyers in a federal inquiry in Canada, the Cohen Commission into the Decline of the Sockeye salmon. Expecting that her years of research into the detrimental effects of open ocean fish farms would find a place in a sea of evidence, she is instead questioned on her qualifications and integrity.

Here's a courtroom drama as fascinating as any fictional courtroom drama, but this is about the attempt to discredit and muzzle those standing up for our incredibly valuable resource, the salmon.
