The difference is that there's 500,000 gallons per second through the Fraser slide and only 80,000 gallons per second in the Clearwater. Larger volumes are harder to navigate because of the power of the current.

Thanks, that a good point. I didn’t even consider the sheer volume of the water.

Could someone please tell me, why exactly should we intervene? This is totally a natural thing, happening like many, many, times in the geological history. And salmon will find their ways, as they always do.

No they won't. Do you know what Kokanee are? They are salmon who no longer visit the ocean because the river has been blocked.

So, what? As if there is shortage of fish on this planet.

Ever heard of dying killer whales who can't enough salmon? Ever listen to the news about Salmon lately? Their numbers are way down.

The same geological history that spans millions of years? Why wait when it can be fixed now

Actually, many indicators are pointing to a shortage in areas and an overall shortage looming as the world pop grows

They could just swim elsewhere, where there is more food. Oceans are vast. What's wrong with that concept?
