Look.....nobody ever said ANYTHING about being happy about Japans misfortune. I certainly would never say that. I feel for my fellow man no matter
where they live or ultimately what bad choices they may have made.
HOWEVER it did happen and had it not happened we would not have had the Salmon come in as they did this year.
You people are not from Alaska. I understand that you have no idea what you are talking about OR the fact that this affects you to just as everything
does, but try.
IF this was just a good year for Salmon do you really think I would be posting this here on ATS even? Lets just say for one absurd second that I may
know what I am talking about for the sake of this argument shall we?
The Salmon came in more then strong this year and the only ones who can remember the Salmon coming in this strong are people who have been out there
over 20 years or more. There has been a lot of talk about how the Salmon is dwindling and the Government has put a lot of stipulations on the
residents of Alaska to make it harder to feed their families here.
My family doesn't depend on the Salmon as much as others do here in Alaska, so I write this to create more awareness. I write this because its not
being said on the news and it absolutly should be.
YES had the tsunami not happened we would not know just how big of an impact Japan has been having on our State and the rest of the lower 48 since we
tend to supply them with much of its Salmon as well.
The Government has been trying to devise a plan to introduce a genetically altered fish to solve the problem of the Salmon disappearing in recent
years and introduce it the waters. They call it the Frankenfish. Hell no we don't want that to happen and neither should you.........that could
wipe out the 'normal' salmon as we know it and who knows what other kind of damage it could cause.
Lets talk about the Fishermen that are from here who depend on those fish directly to survive shall we? Many of them went bankrupt because the fish
have not been there. There was speculation about Japan taking most of the fish but it wasn't till this series of unfortunate events solidified its
I can only hope that you hear me because like I said, its not something they are showing on the news and I am trying to get this out there. So far I
don't seem to be having any luck.
