    sitting here at my beach cabin in Sequim/Diamond Point..

    Last 3 days…. long liners have been gang banging the tiger king out of west end of protection island. I bet they are loving every minute of us being off the water. If it wasn’t for the baby we just had and the Wooldridge we just ordered (which has been delayed due to this stupid shelter in place order), I would be moving back to Alaska. Once again, there will not be anything but table scraps left for us. How is it that the tribes get to go out and fish but the state can kick us off the water.... I heard they are only getting $1.50/lb when they usually get $9. So why even fish then?

    With all the restaurants closed the demand/price for fresh fish has tanked. There will be a glut of frozen product when things open back up that will lower the price on that frozen product. Hard times for everyone.

    why not conserve the resource for once then? the amount of commercial and tribal pressure on these fish is unreal. one season of no pressure would do a world of good for future years.

    conservation is just contrary to human nature....
    I learned a few new words today:
    Anthropocentrism
    Nonanthropocentrism
    Sentientism
    Biocentrism
