Uck Uck Uck, bitches
If this is science I don't believe in it. I think the move toward allowing vital rivers to die needs to be laid at the feet of the managers...WDFW is not viable and has not been for a long time.
There's no way I'd actually say that, but was just venting frustration. I tend to work more with thank you's and pleases, and another thank you to top it off....I've been thinking about your comment for a couple days. Not sure I want to tell WDFW or whomever to do as you suggest. However I did write to my legislative district (13) senator and two representatives and asked for their review of WDFW's of this proposal. I am not in favor of Cooke Aquaculture raising fish in Puget Sound and asked the same senator and representatives to do their part in not having this farm permitted. Please do the same.
They have. It's called Recirculating Aquaculture. Basically these are closed loop systems that re-use the same water after treating it through a series of bio-filters. Frequently in the form of hydroponic vegetables that grow insanely fast in the fish "waste" water.No!!!!!!! fish farming at all In our waters, if they really need to do it figure out a way to do it on land.
No, it is the Jamestown Tribe proposing this, not the Elwha, and they are proposing triploid, not diploid trout.It appears the Elwha tribe is now a willing partner with Cooke to use repurpose net pens in PA harbor to raise diploid rainbow trout to be marketed as steelhead. Nothing to worry about here. The Elwha are stewards of the resource. You just can't make the stuff up.
