Long Live The King

I'm involved with a restoration effort for another King, the Atlantic salmon. But I'm equally concerned with the Pacific King. Thought I'd share this video I came across.

Thanks for sharing. I have always felt that we needed to have a fundamental shift in mentality regarding salmon. I remember asking a fellow how the fishing was in Winter Harbour and he replied "so far we have 600 pounds between the 4 of of us."

Pretty sad that this is the mentality of so many.

Superb video. Makes one pause.

As for size getting smaller, when the top genetic pool is removed, you have genetic dwarf-ism. It takes several breeds to climb back from where you left of, or maybe never.

I posted a pic on this site years ago showing the fish size pre and post genetic drawf-ism. Can't find it, and maybe someone can. Anyway, big size difference.

Conservation is nothing more than the fight to save ourselves from ourselves, work that can only be done by ourselves.
