    wow. The sad thing is that nothing will happen. When will we realize that if we don't start acting on sustainable practices, we'll just be sawing both our legs off, then the arms, leaving just our heads to witness the last breathe of our human errors. I guess the quick dollar and greed is more important.

    Leland, do you have any info?? Doesn't appear that the fish have been gutted, eggs pulled or anything. Thats a lot of fish to dump... Is it possible they were trapped by the tide...unlikely for sure, but... possibly an oxygen/polution issue??

    if not, what a wanton waste...

    The females were stripped of their roe for wholesale sale to the lucrative sushi market. "Ikura", or salmon eggs, are a delicacy in Japan and in sushi bars around the world.

    Dave, I looked at the FB page and the accompanying comments and it seems (I'm assuming the info is truthful) that these Skok fish were dumped just about everywhere. The males were whole but the hens had been stripped of the eggs.

    The poster said what you see in the photo is only about a quarter of the fish they left.

    He claims to have seen folks driving down the road with people in the bed of a pickup tossing fish into the roadside bushes!

    Makes me want to puke!!! :mad:

    Yeah it seems that this in not an isolated incident. I was doing some Cutthroat scouting in the South Sound yesterday and saw this on the side of the road. Made me sick. None of the fish were gutted, just dumbed.[IMG]

    Is it too late to head down and shovel a few into a bucket? The temps have been low..... maybe they will still be firm, i could smoke them and give away during the holidays.

    btw..... seasons greetings! :)

    The fish in the pic looks fresh, it is bright and has blood running down its side but it does not look like a chum to me. Could be I guess. At any rate better to give them away to people that will eat them then to dump them along side the road.

    Hard to tell if the fish are actually dead or passed out because of swimming in all the fire-waader
