Ecopoetics Along Shorelines


May 22, 2018

As a commercial fisherman, it’s tough to cohabitate with the other predators. In places like central/northern California and the Colombia river, marine predators are consuming more salmon than we are (figure 4)! This sends us right back to the drawing board. Our intentions in cutting back on salmon to more evenly distribute and plan for more sustainable fisheries is not proportional to the number of salmon who survive migration. It is important for policy-makers to acknowledge the inequity and uncertainty here. It may be necessary for us to zoom out and “identify major tradeoffs and explore [other] hypotheses” (p. 7).
