    Salmon swimming freely through Fraser River

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...E_466m0L2d_Uh8

    Also, they are going to start monitoring the Pinks.
    So, the settles the other thread on those Pinks washing up on the Fraser before Hope.
    Only one group that has the equipment allowed on the river that can kill that many pinks in 1 shot.
    Not a coincidence and those Pinks were far from being at their spawning beds!
    Just wasted! for nothing.
    Time to stop that crap.
    Hand nets, okay.
    But not nets across the river.

    hand nets - traditionally made by hand - by the user or immediate family/tribe of user
    no boats but dugout canoes
    limit to number of salmon needed to feed family for 1 year - and to share with people in your presence
    no sales of ANY fish caught under these guidelines

    heck - do this and i'll pay to have the kids come out and watch how it used to be done.

    Great news on the fish getting upstream!

    I know DFO spent a fortune on this problem, I hope it was money well spent.

    We can blame the natives till the sky turns black, but I've also blame the customer. They ain't native, they be lazy non natives. Without customers, there's little need to catch more than you and your family can eat.

    Thats what I've always said..I lose respect for anyone buying native roadside fish...like buying stolen shit from a crackhead..although the way Canada's going it may be the only way to get salmon at a decent price...that or like my neighbor says kill em all so we have nothing left to fight over..

    Well said.
    Have a Brother in Law who goes on and on about the blank blank FN's then heads to the reserve to buy a bunch of salmon to can and smoke.
    Sorry but you can't play both sides of the game.

    Buying Salmon from FN is buying stolen goods, simple as that.
