ALL HAIL

Recommended Posts

Where's the alien spaceship? I was told there would be a spaceship.

Don't you see it? It is like right there! See it? I heard if you take a shit-ton of phenobarbital then you can open your mind's eye and become one with the aliens.

Hail Sturgeon!

All hail the mighty Sturgeon which bedevils Washington and Oregon biologists tasked with its management!

“It’s not an exact science,’’ Frazier said. “These critters are challenging for us…We’re not saying one is necessarily right over the other.’’

...

Sturgeon retention in the lower Columbia River has not been allowed in sport or commercial fisheries since 2013.

...

About 65 percent of the lower Columbia sturgeon population is juvenile fish. That was estimated to be 69 percent a year. Oregon’s sturgeon conservation plan sets 90 percent as the desired level. The estimate of spawning-size adult sturgeon is 4,140 using one methodology and 5,950 using another. That makes the three-year averages 3,620 and 4,230, respectively.

...

“Sturgeon need high, turbulent waters to spawn,’’ Barber said. 

...

“This is a population that is severely stressed and I think really sick,’’ he said.

...

“We’re not recruiting juveniles and that should be very troubling,’’ Wickersham said.

...

Commission member Larry Carpenter of Mount Vernon said the agency needs to provide a vision for the public and if there is a chance of future retention of sturgeon.

...

“We need to keep in mind our science is imperfect,’’ said Miranda Wecker, a commission member from Naselle.
