    So, if sports fishing closures are not enacted, now, how else will these whales find enough chinook to eat? I can see increased hatchery production coming soon but it will probably not be not fast enough to make a difference.

    Hmmm... That's strange, they forgot to insert any mention of the main competitors to the Orcas ie: Seals and Sealions. BRUTAL

    Grr.. how can the most intelligent mammal second to humans (sometimes) starve to death when surrounded by other food sources..

    One word... "Darwinism".

    That’s a good point maybe we should chum the waters with seal meat for them

    Suzuki is correct on his points. He neglects to list Seal Predation as a cause which hurts his credibility. I like the part about acting too late. Down here in WA rockfish descending devices became required to have onboard last year - about 10 years after Puget Sound was closed to Rockfish fishing/retention.

    We are asking DFO to make the descending device mandatory for the 2018 season....
