Here are a few links that I found interesting:
It appears there are multiple agencies and it's confusing to me who does what. Here are just two.
Titled: Can you tell me about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service?
Here's another, this is NOAA, Northwest Fisheries Science Center
Title: Ocean Ecosystem Indicators
Very interesting and it is talking about the Fraser River Chinook.
It doesn't answer the question as to why wild Fraser River Chinook salmon are still being caught, but it is information about the assessments.
Maybe I've just been looking at the wrong country. Maybe Canada needs to stop to 'their' Fraser River Chinook salmon being caught as they pass through these U. S. waters?
Would that make a difference?
It is so convoluted, there seem to be so many layers.
It's not rocket science.
No fish - no whales.
And someday no fish for the people.
Good luck whales. We'll keep trying.
