RE:A Scary Rumor
Okay, still no confirmation other than more rumors flying around the Internet. I e-mailed the WDFW with questions regarding if this is true and what their methodology is for run size estimate--if what I hear is correct, they are basing this year's projected numbers on depressed runs the last two years. Of course, this--as we all know--is a faulty method due to fluctuations in both ocean and post-spawn river conditions. I also called our Region 4 biologist and left a message, but have yet to get a response from either contact. I will let you guys know if I find anything out, and please post any info you might have here. This is something we should all be concerned about. Thanks for your help.
