Sea Lion Removal
« on: August 13, 2020, 04:12:09 PM »
Just read in the local paper that the removal of 840 Steller's and California Sea Lions has been approved for the Columbia from Bonneville to McNary over the next 5 years.   Article did not say who would do this or how.
It never changes, but it is always different.

Good news, hopefully that opens a door for removal within Puget Sound as well.  Those things are part of the too many things crushing salmon.

 Sturgeon have taken a huge hit.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

They need to do similar to the goat removal this fall in the Olympics!  :twocents:

How many sea lions etc are actually in the Bonniville to mcNary stretch?

Iím assuming bonniville will include a certain distance below bonniville?

Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh.
Time for cormorant removal. We need management on those too. Help fry survival rate. The pacific flyway is the only flyway that doesn't have management of comorants. 50,000 a year across the country but none over here. Not hunting but conflict removal.

This is mostly for below Bonneville, A few times Sea lions have snuck above multiple dams, this gives them authority to correct that.
