In British Columbia, Canada, salmon purse seiners line up at fishing access points, forming well defined queues. These queues were measured over time, using a one-dimensional recording scale. Sixty-one overflights of Johnstone Strait and Queen Charlotte Strait were attempted; 51 flights were completed.

Even though native American peoples have done much to help restore salmon runs in the Columbia and Snake River systems, they refuse to act responsibly on a treaty agreement that gives them 50% of the salmon return. They use the number of fish raised in hatcheries to calculate their quota. A 4% return of adult salmon from the original number of fish raised is a pretty good return ratio. This allows the use of gillnets for a very extended period of time by the tribes,meaning that since there is no possibility of filling their quota, they can soak their nets all year long. The most damaging operations which impede salmon recovery are the dams. It is amazing these fish have not disappeared altogether. :roll:
