RE:Time to Take A Stand!


Just a couple thoughts on the wild v. native terminology. I agree with you that for fishers at least, the term native is more accurate. My concerns are that since we are talking about possibly taking this to the public via the initiative process, the term "native" may not have the same meaning. I'm not so sure that joe public knows a native fish from a goldfish. And I'm also concerned that the word native might translate in some peoples mind to the tribes. Of course one could argue that these are the problems and for the group to be successful, the public need to be educated otherwise. Just my .02 before I climb into my waders this morning.
