· Stop Killing Wild Steelhead!
5,770 Posts
If you want to make a diference there you should write to Dr Brian Winter at the Elwha Restoration Project office at the Olympic Park offices, and tell him you want to stop killing Elwha rainbows to help support the restoration of the genetic stocks of the river.You go up there and harvest an elk or a squirrel or a dandelion and they will shoot you on sight. We shouldnt be killing those fish at all.Partly because it's a national park and mostly because those fish are the genetic descendants of the wild steelhead stock of 100 years ago. At any rate, there's certainly no such thing as too much fisheries biomass on the olympic peninsula. Let them live and die in the river.
