    Glad you found and posted it. That is such good news. Back in the 1980s,I worked on a seafood processing ship. One of the worse jobs I ever completed. Thing is, we handled one crazy amount of Bristol Bay salmon. Given that the Bristol Bay fishery is a renewable resource industry, folks need to preserve it for future generations. We're talking both jobs and food. On top of that, Sockeye salmon is my all-time favorite salmon. The Bristol Bay fishery is, I've heard, the largest Red Salmon fishery in the world. Let's keep it that way.

    Fantastic news indeed.

    The amount of support we got for this cause was amazing. All different types of user groups came together and made a huge impact.

    Imagine if we could do that for steelhead reform.

    Well, you know the mess those guys make on the reality show "GOLD RUSH". Can you imagine mining 110 million ounces? Oh my…….. It's not rocket science.

    Fingers crossed, knock on wood, no whistling or bananas in the wheelhouse, hatch covers right side up.
