$4.99 will buy anyone a pound of FRESH Situk River Steelhead from Safeway's Anchorage, Alaska store. Locally Safeway stores are known as Carrs Quality Foods--boycott the buggers [all Safeway stores]!

The Situk River is located near Yakutat, Alaska, and the steelhead are being netted today as part of the coho [silver] salmon fishery.

I'd like to see all anadromous fish harvest go to selective trap fisheries. On a recent trip to Sherears Falls on the Deschutes I saw how effectively this could work, not only for species but native vs. hatchery.

It reduces the cost, maximizes the accountability and protects the endangered.
