Coho in Siberia

Coho in Siberia

I know you're wondering what has this got to do with this? I was reading about the Artic Char, Rainbows, Dolly Vardons, Coho, Chinook and other fish in the rivers in Kamchakta and Siberia. All pure strain, wild as the nearest hatcheries are very far away. Some of the guide services over there claim that Alaska ain't got nothing on them. Good reading. Lots of pics. Googled the info.

I think it is a good thing they are doing and for the numbers to be that high and hearing that they are still getting them at the mouth well hell they are going to need to do something with them.

TB I really don't think you need to worry about ordering fish at a resteraunt, I'm pretty sure they don't get thier fish from the food bank.

I would think the hatchery would collect enough eggs for the next round. :think:

If your hungary you will truly appreciate any kind of free food that is safe to eat. OFB does a lot for the state and beyond.

Big up to feeding the needy! My first salmon I caught went to a homeless shelter in Portland because it is a Native American tradition that the fishing initiate must give away his first salmon to those who need it more than him. Kind of a karmic tithing. I am not of American Indian blood, but they were here before me and I felt it was appropriate to honor their tradition. I respect the hatchery for doing that.
