    The only good thing DFO has done is the construction of a bypass in the Fraser river due to the slide ..Other than that they have done NOTHING....Dennis

    Well Dennis, they actually have done a few things...

    "Managed" our salmon into widespread near population collapses;
    Negotiated away access to most salmon for the purposes of "reconciliation";
    Largely shut down the recreational sector to address the situation described immediately above;
    Refuse to openly address the ever increasing numbers of pinnipeds and the fact they consume in excess of 50% of annual salmon production;
    Constantly lied about every thing they touch while madly effing all of it up;
    Allowed job self-preservation to come well before any consideration for the actual resource;
    And - turning the West Coast into the exact same kind of biological desert they did to the east.

    That said, I agree that NOTHING on that list marks them as coming anywhere even marginally close to capable or competent.

    In the big picture, this is still just a drop in the bucket to adequately address our salmon/steelhead crisis - we need to start talking numbers that begin with a "B" and end with "illions".

    But my first question is what happened to the $142 million they announced in 2019? Has all that money already been spent? If so, what was it spent on and what were/are the outcomes? If it hasn't been spent yet, then why not? What's the delay? And what are they going to spend it on?

    There are soooo many contributing factors to our salmon/steelhead crisis and I don't need to regurgitate them to you. But one area I think where DFO is severely dropping the ball is related to the complete lack of any research being done on salmon and steelhead salt water life cycles. This is where these fish spend the majority of their lives, and we have very little research that documents where exactly they go and what exactly they do when they're out there for all those years. Yes we have a broad idea of where they go, but we don't know what their lives are like during that journey and what specifically they're feeding on, how the quality of their habitat(s) change during their journey and what are the most prevalent and serious threats to their lives while out at sea. There are basically no initiatives being undertaken by DFO (except for that Russian boat they rented a few years ago) to begin studying and learning more about their salt water life cycles. WTF?
