  1. Nets and plastics are a really big problem in Puget Sound. I wonder how many PVC tubes and area nets are lost from geoduck operations? Thousands of PVC tubes per acre, all covered with plastic nets. Imagine hundreds of acres of HDPE netting over these operations. There are known escapes, just how many? Do we have any statistics on these? I’m also astounded that the thousands of tons (!) of plastic that are used are NOT rated for marine use. Thoughts?

  2. Chris – around Hood Canal (in particular Brinnon, Quilcene, Dabob bay), the Skoks use fishing nets and do not seem to care whether the salmon run is small. I have always been a staunch supporter of Native Americans and their rights, but when it comes to environmental issues that affect all of us across the board regardless of race, religion, or sex, I will always come to the defense of the environment and not of anyone or any group in particular. Because it belongs to all of us – and because it is up to us to protect it.
