Does anyone know how many salmon get taken by the fishing trawlers? I’ve tried finding the information online but there’s nothing. It seems a bit strange that Fish & Game (or other fishing groups) don’t kick up a stink about the fishing companies profiting from all the time, effort and money put into the fishery. In fact no one really seems to care or know about it.
Twenty odd years ago, my dad was telling the owner of a local fishing company he knows (who shall remain unnamed) about how he wasn’t having any luck catching a salmon. His reply was that if he wanted salmon he had plenty of it and you can see wild salmon on his companies posters at your local fish and chip shop.
