Not good news for salmon lovers...

Collapse of chinook season devastates salmon trollers. With the closing of the salmon season, Oregon's salmon trollers will lose their bread and butter. Their ranks have already dropped from nearly 4,000 permitted trollers in 1980 to fewer than 500 today. - Portland Oregonian

Salmon Season Called Off. Nothing says weekend like kicking back and throwing something on the grill. But if wild salmon is what you're hungry for, pull out your wallet and get ready for 35 bucks a pound. Fishermen here on the West Coast have voted to cancel the Chinook, or king, salmon season. - MarketPlace

End of coast's 150-year-old fishery looms. Changes in the food chain, global warming, mismanagement, overfishing, and environmental degradation have all been suggested as reasons why the West Coast salmon fishery has collapsed.- San Francisco Chronicle

What it will take to restore salmon. There is a paradox about salmon: We love them, but we are part of their problem. - Eureka Times-Standard

Oh we love salmon, but not at $35 a pound. Eeks!
