    Default NATIVES - Neil - Jun 17

    NATIVES
    For the last several years it has become a cultural vogue in the fisheries departments across this country to eliminate so called "non-native" species in favor of historically native species. This policy has resulted in viable populations of fish being totally eradicated in favor of a species that were historically present.

    Well said Neil. We always want to "fix" things that may not be "broken" Dick xfishcop

    Neil,

    Your comments reflect mine 110%. Thank you for more effectively stating your position in a far better manner than any of my previous efforts.

    John,

    I think your post defines the differences on both sides of the coin.

    You would define or justify the discussion/decision with quoted regulations and Websters.

    I would not.

    Keep in mind, Websters has changed numerous times since 1828 and most regulations are of a partisan and political gene pool.

    Native American? I have to agree with Neil. My ancestors all came here long before the revolutionary war. SO I consider myself a much "Native American" as any other....with the mode of transportation (ship vs land bridge) being the only difference. Definitions are often used both ways in order to support or refute a particular argument.

    John,

    All in good discussion.

    BTW.....you're signature..."The fish are always right"...

    They seem to be doing just fine where they are at...why remove them?

    John,

    I undertand the "why" they are addressing it like they are. Still don't agree with it though.

    My response actually was just a light-hearted comment on your signature.
