2010 California sea lion hazing at Willamette Falls

ODFW staff has been hazing California sea lions on the Willamette River between Willamette Falls and the I-205 once or twice a week since March 26. This is a pilot project to test the effectiveness of using non-lethal methods such as cracker shells and low-level underwater pyrotechnic devices to move sea lions downstream to reduce chinook salmon and steelhead mortality around the fish ladders at Willamette Falls. The program will be evaluated later this year to determine whether and to what extent such efforts should continue in the future.

Well from what I was reading looks like they tag them relocated them and see if they come back. Also seems if they come back once they live but I guess if they come back for a third time they are killed. At least that's what I got out of it.

so far thats what i think too. Altho i do know that if zoo's and aquariums have a need for them and they are "fit" for it they will ship em there as well.
