  1. But what role has the huge drop in forage fish populations played in driving (especially) seals and sea lions to feasting on chinook? How many weakened chinook are hatchery fish?

  2. Residents on or near the shore have known for years that seals were an important piece of Puget Sound health. Our voices were dismissed by all those partnerships, Councils, EPA and writers who just pushed their opinions or even worse never sought a solution. We live here and have been accused of everything on the books with NO proven science just best available science ( best guess) Property owners on the shoreline have picked up trash, removed tires, fishing nets, floating logs, dead animals and so on. I will not support your Big Lies or best guess opinions. . Real science is ever changing.

    1. Salmon are worth billions to sport fishermen. Salmon are protected so let’s start protecting them and cull many of the seals not all but back to the 1970’s level. Can’t have it both ways, humans deserve respect also in this equation. Commercial fishermen collected a bounty from the state on seals, that’s when it was realistic. What would Milo Moore say he was the smartest fish biologist wa state had and they fired him ,its been downhill ever since.

    2. Residents on or near the shore were right about the sealion proliferation and over-population problem, but shouldn’t be so self-righteous because untreated sewage from those living “on the sound” is a big cause of oxygen depleted dead zones in Puget Sound.
