  1. These are essential issues in fishery management. Very good find! It is very hard however, to not trade one resource for another, as everything we do takes resources!

  2. While I understand the question posed by the Cook Inlet set netter, I would add that the trade is a renewable resource for a non-renewable one. The deposits the Pebble Mine could render would be a relatively short term gain, as opposed to the potentially endless sockeye run.
