GETTING STARTED ON THE GOOD FOOT




It’s great to be able to start Slop Press on a good note: despite their disheartening numbers last year, sockeye salmon have made a record return to the Fraser River in British Columbia, with estimated numbers being in excess of 25 million.  That’s 23.3 million more than last year, a boom that has caught fishermen completely off-guard.  The supply, for once, has outpaced demand.

There’s no good explanation as to how this has occurred, and there’s still plenty wrong with the overall picture.  We’re still living in an age where it’s completely conceivable that our children won’t be able to find tuna, salmon or other fish in their lifetime, but this is at least one good bit of news in an otherwise dismal situation.
