Event description
“What Fish Want” takes the viewer below the surface, revealing the silent disappearance of fish from the largest river in the Alps.

About this event

What Fish Want documents the dramatic deterioration of the once-mighty, incredibly diverse River Inn in Tyrol, and the silent disappearance of its innumerable fish due to hydropower plants. Tyrol‘s Inn River has lost 95% of its floodplains, and 28 of the 31 native fish species are endangered or extinct. Underwater, life and death are both silent and invisible.

The documentary screening will be followed by an exchange with the director, Christoph J. Walder and speakers from the EU institutions on how the impact of hydropower on fish could be reduced, including through the revision of the EU Renewable Energy Directive.

Agenda:

  • 17:45 - Entrance
  • 18:00 – 19:00 PM - Screening of the documentary
  • 19:00 – 19:45 PM - Discussion panel
