Seattle Times Gets Well Deserved Thumping

The Seattle Times got a well deserved thumping for a remarkably naive story they recently ran suggesting that Salmon fisheries be suspended in an attempt to recover orcas. This does nothing but spread gross misunderstandings about the problems we face in Puget Sound, and what is required to mount a recovery.

So, as you might expect, they drew firey responses from experts including former WDFW directors and Tribal fisheries managers — who have a much clearer idea about what drives our salmon ecosystem than do Times reporters. So before you read more, if you’re confused about why fishing cuts won’t work, try this simulation from an article we wrote months ago.
