Yukon Follow-up

As a follow up to the post Yukon Dreaming, I wanted to let you know that the fish did not show up this year.   The Governor has written a letter stating the need for a disaster declaration by the Federal Government.  It is believed that the salmon are being intercepted by large pollock and similar rigged vessels out at sea, preventing the Yukon salmon from re-entering the river of their birth.  Click here to read more about the governor's efforts.  It is truly disheartening to learn that one of nature's great assets is in serious danger of extinction.
