    Crazy for sure.
    Tear down working Hydroelectric dams so salmon can move about
    but block the alewife from moving about cause a few greedy guides
    want the lakes and “sports” all to themselves.
    Seems unamerican to me.

    I love alewifes, they are delicious.

    Atlantic salmon fishermen organized the movement to protect their species because of the fishing experience.  Bass fishermen are trying to protect their domain with a different strategy based on the protection of the fishing chain of preferred species.  Therefore, the establishment tells us to ignore historical facts in favor of fishermen preference and to certainly overlook the rights of indigenous natives.  This is wrong.  A need exists to make fishermen accountable for their actions and to base decisions on historical and natural rights.  In this case, dams will continue to exist but fishways will be allowed to operate in accordance with their design standards.  We must identify the interests of the protected and favored few as truly special interests.
