This article is one of the most 'concrete' pieces of 'cause and affect'
that I have seen. The next best piece would be to act on it.
This is from CBC News, posted on October 4th:
The Southern Residents want Fraser River salmon, and it is said that they want the Chinook because they are the biggest. This fall the Chinook took a bump up in #s returning, that is for several days.
The Southern Residents also eat Chum salmon. At about the same time, Chum salmon took a much bigger bump up in numbers, and those numbers are staying pretty strong. The Albion test fishery chart from Sep 7 - Oct 6: Chinook 192 to Chum 1,134 and they are only setting test nets every other day.
Last I know of, J Pod was many miles north of the Fraser...that must be where the salmon are - coming back to the Fraser via the north.
added 10-13: J Pod did come down a couple days ago and went west.
