I was thinking the whites wouldn't put a dent in the seal problem because they eat one seal and they're good for a month. But I guess when you're at the all you can eat buffet you gorge on the stuff you really like.

Same thing happened out in Seattle at the Hiram Chittendon Locks where human intervention caused a barrier where sea lions would feast on salmon and steelhead. They would eventually only eat the roe and not bother with the fish.

Dumbass human fault entirely for creating the problem - but to watch them eat the caviar out of our struggling fish populations after surviving thousands of miles at sea was difficult!

We owe it to the steelhead and salmon to reverse the problem in that case (not to mention dams :mad: )

Ya know, the thing about that story is with all the people fishing out front during the commercial season you'd think we would have heard about the carnage already.
