There used to be salmon as big as golden retrievers in the Columbia River, but dams killed them off

With all due respect to the article writer, do we really WANT those uber-huge salmon?

It is known that for salmon (or any other fish) to get that big, there is a progressive and logarithmic increase in the amount of food that they need to get 1 pound bigger.

More salmon of lesser size might actually be better for the environment and the fisherman. It is not like the salmon are prevented from spawning until they get to X size.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
