Contrary to most media reports, the total abundance of Pacific salmon is at record high levels, and Pink, Chum, and Sockeye salmon have been more abundant during the past 25 years than any time since 1925.

     

 

Now I’ve been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
Oh, I’ve been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Someday it’s going to come

‘Cause I’m on the edge of darkness
There ride the Peace Train
Oh, Peace Train take this country
Come take me home again

Now I’ve been smiling lately,
Thinkin’ about the good things to come
And I believe it could be,
Something good has begun

Cat Stevens, from “Peace Train”, 1971

 

 

 

December 13, 2017 – Washington – Salmon fishing restrictions may get ‘severe’

Chinook are listed by the Endangered Species Act and their numbers are dwindling.

 

February 28, 2018 – the 2017 preliminary postseason river run size estimate for Klamath River Fall Chinook was 31,838 adults, a 42 percent increase of what was predicted. The escapement to natural spawning areas was 18,514 adults, which was 163 percent of the preseason prediction of 11,379 adults.

 

 

 

As you can see from the set of news accounts immediately above, the folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including the salmon.

It’s May, 2018, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve appended numerous recent news accounts below to support it.

In them you’ll see how literally-highest-in-history salmon numbers are earnestly being reported as a bad thing, but do you really think that’s a good long-term tactical defense against such an occurrence?

Some of the stories suggest that the booming killer whales are messing with the salmon. And that the booming salmon are messing with other salmon, and other fish. But everything is booming and burgeoning.

While having wholly-controlled-and-coopted Media organs in every nation on Earth might seem impressive on some levels, it really can’t and doesn’t change things on a basic level, it can only spin.

The Romans provided bread and circuses to the mob, to keep it quiet, and at best they could only steer the mob, or try to. That’s where we are now, and the mob is far more awake and aware than it has ever been.

I’m in Southern California for a wedding at the moment. A couple of days ago, on a hike in the Hollywood hills, I overheard a local woman about my age, in her fifties, say to a friend “oh, my God, I’ve never seen the city so clear!”

Yesterday we hiked up above Santa Barbara, and the country was verdantly, brilliantly green. I’m just tellin’ ya.

The world is changing, has changed, permanently. The tactics of the folks in charge are not changing, in any way. What do you think is going to happen to them? What do you think their role is going to be in our new, forever-changed world?

They’re going to be recognized, and called out, and ostracized, just as I’m doing right here, and right now. They’re going to be brought to justice, and removed from power, forever.

 

 

 

 

November 27, 2017 – Higher Than Expected Number Of Chinook Salmon Return To American River

It appears this is an average year for the number of fall-fun Chinook Salmon returning to spawn in the American River.

The numbers were expected to be much lower because of high water temperatures and predators when the fish were juveniles heading to the ocean during the drought.

Efforts to help salmon populations in recent years include releases of cold water during the beginning and end of the salmon’s life cycle and the rehabilitation of 30 acres of American River spawning ground with 100,000 tons of gravel.

Laura Drath with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife said the daily reports show the numbers of returning salmon are on par with an average year.

February 21, 2018 – Fishing the North Coast: Klamath salmon count up

We’ve got a long way to go, but it looks like the worst may be over for the run of fall kings on the Klamath. In 2016, the number of returning Fall Chinook adults to the Klamath River was estimated at 27,353. At the time, those were the lowest returns ever recorded. In 2017, CDFW predicted the numbers would go even lower. Only 18,410 kings were predicted to return, prompting a full closure of the fall season on the Klamath. North Coast ocean anglers also took a hit.

Both the California and Oregon Klamath Management Zones (KMZ) were closed to recreational salmon fishing in 2017 due to the Klamath’s low returns. According to the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC), which released its “Review of 2017 Ocean Salmon Fisheries” document on Feb. 15, the 2017 preliminary postseason river run size estimate for Klamath River Fall Chinook was 31,838 adults, a 42 percent increase of what was predicted. The escapement to natural spawning areas was 18,514 adults, which was 163 percent of the preseason prediction of 11,379 adults.

Based on the 2017 returns, it looks like the stocks are rebuilding a year ahead of schedule. The estimated hatchery return was 11,213 adults. Jack returns to the Klamath Basin totaled 21,903 including 16,522 that escaped to natural spawning areas. The average number of jack returns over the last five seasons is 13,398, so these are huge improvements and a good indicator of the number of three-year old’s that are in the ocean and could potentially return to the river next fall.

Could More Salmon Cause Reduced Growth, Lower Survival of Some Salmon Populations?

A new article published by the American Fisheries Society (AFS), in its journal Marine and Coastal Fisheries: Dynamics, Management, and Ecosystem Science, reports that, contrary to most media reports, the total abundance of Pacific salmon is at record high levels, and Pink, Chum, and Sockeye salmon have been more abundant during the past 25 years than any time since 1925.
