The dogfish we all loved to hate as sport fishermen in years past when we didn't know better is in trouble. Their numbers are decreasing here on the west coast like they did on the east coast not that many years ago. This remarkable creature of the sea plays an important part in the food chain in most oceans around the world. Here is an interesting article in todays Seattle Times about the disapearence of the dogfish in Puget Sound in recent years. Maybe one of our members, Maui Jim can give us more insight on this lowly shark as he has been working on this very project for the last couple of years.
Sorry this url will not work for some reason. there are more numbers in url but when I post it it comes up short. Hopefully someone can figure out how to post entire url.
