Thanks Fred. I hadn't noticed that.
If AK doesn't address their diminishing salmon returns, they are going to have some competition soon! What about it, Ard?

I've been following the progress on the Elwha closely,

I'm hoping it sets proper precedent for the highly debated controversial damn removal local to me.

It's amazing how capable these fish are when we give them a chance.

Since I left Michigan, they have taken out a number of dams, which is part of the reason their anadromous fish program has worked out so well.
