But the Cook Aquaculture people said this wasn't going to be an issue - I'm SHOCKED!   :rolleyes:

Yeah, nothing to report.  Cook says it's fine, we don't even know if these are the same fish or not. :lol4:
WDFW says there is nothing to worry about and only "a small number of the more than 105,000 Atlantics from the escape still unaccounted for."

Apparently the tribe and sport catch did much better than anticipated and these guys just stumbled on the last 38 fish by pure luck.  Even though people aren't required to report their catch, we know how many were caught.

Also, don't pay any attention to the ever changing estimates of how many fish actually escaped.  We can account for all of them even though we don't know how many escaped.
