The general election is fast approaching and first off......make sure you vote. Second......vote yes on 81 (if your an Oregon voter). It is long past due to find a way to conserve commercial fishing while doing it in a manner that will substantially reduce their ESA impacts on target species and more importantly stop wasteful mortality on non-target species such as steelhead and sturgeon to name a couple. I know the governor has a plan going forward, but forgive me if I'm a little distrustful of the political process. Feel free to discuss the positives and negatives of the measure.
