Via the Native Fish Society: With Sandy river hatchery plants cut by half, stray rates below 10%, wild broodstock programs suspended and a precedent setting federal court ruling, the Three Rivers Sportman’s Alliance (a pro-hatchery “political action committee”) is planning to protest our upcoming Annual Benefit Banquet and Auction.
FYI, there’s some amazing stuff happening on this website:
“We all agree on one thing, we need to make more fish. Hatchery programs are necessary for salmon recovery, recreation, jobs and the economic health of our State.”
In response, Native Fish Society supporters and members have asked us to provide an opportunity to raise additional support for wild fish by donating per protester.
If you’d like to sponsor a protester please email email@example.com with your name, the amount you would like to donate per protester and your phone number. Thank you for all your support for wild, native fish!
Side note: Chris and Shauna Daughters have donated 1 Angler, 5 Nights / 4 Days fishing the South Island of New Zealand to the annual auction. Should be a great night, with protestor fireworks to boot! Don’t miss it.
