Scottish Sea Farms wanted a short film to explain the environmentally friendly sustainable solution they had found to help reduce chemicals in the salmon farming – the use of cleaner Wrasse fish. Specifically, Sea Farms are helping to fund a £2 million research and development project into the Wrasse, and how they counteract issues such as sea lice. This long term proposal integrates the combined efforts of Marine Harvest, Stirling University, Machrihanish Marine Labs to breed the fish and research their long-term implications.
Due to the groundbreaking nature of this project we wanted to highlight the technicality of the project by conducting extensive interviews with marine biologists to educate the viewer on the process and ambitions of the project. This coupled with the crisp, blue images of the sea, and magnificent action shots of wild fish, we wanted to show the dedication the project has behind preserving high-quality in an integral sector of Scotland’s economy. The sounds of the natural environment mixed with an ethereal composition created by glass harmonica, resulted in a harmonious and optimistic final product with a strong, exciting message.

Well done, really like it!! John Rea [the main interviewee] should be on Landward or something like that, seems really natural and honest! This is really good - nice tone and messages throughout.
