Should one small group be allowed to exploit at the risk of so much and so many???

    take a look.. https://alaskaconservation.org/2019/...m-pebble-mine/

    I am a hunter, a fisherman, a conservative, a naturalist, a gun person, and I vote, bring back the salmon to your streams, and fight like heck to keep them. even if they are not wild fish. destroying resources is the doom of us all.

    Wow.. what a rant.. did I say all that?? lol
    Thank you for your perspective. It is a shame that people are not mindful of their actions. Killing off a natural habitat in the quest for a mineral--the value of which is entirely subjective.

    The commercialization of fish has wreaked havoc. I read about things like the collateral kill of a lot of fish caught in the nets when seeking sushi grade fish--it put me off sushi. Then there's shark fin soup in Asia, where they kill the shark to get the fin. It makes me want to cry.

    The only good thing is, as you have pointed out, nature is very resilient up to a point. I just don't want to get to the point of no return.

    Hmm.. We live in a fresh water lake area now. Salmon is a possible catch, but difficult. My DH and my son are putting a downrigger on the boat today, actually.

    The last (only) time I made sushi was when I was about 3 months pregnant (almost 40 years ago) and believe me, my stomach was not liking it then. Maybe it's time I try again!
