Close to 10 million chinook and coho salmon swim in Lake Michigan, Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

There were none when Howard Tanner started as the chief of the Michigan Department of Conservation's Fish Division in 1964.

His boss, Ralph MacMullan, spent much of their first meeting lambasting the fish department for its previous lack of action and dysfunction. Heaps of dead fish were washing up on beaches, the lakes were overly commercially fished and there was little recreational fishing to speak of.

He gave Tanner a mandate: "Do something.

"And if you can," he told the Lansing State Journal, "make it spectacular."

I go right by that site every month for bidness. The canoe/kayak launch at the river crossing got shut down years ago because the land owners got fed up with the litter, noise and drunks. A state administered launch would be great. You can tour Civil war sites: Rappahannock Station, Brandy Station, Graffiti House, Catlett Station, Bristoe Station, Kelly's Ford and more in a half day.

Who knew? Tuna hatcheries?

QuoteStaying in the US, another story with a lot of interest last week was the news that Ichthus Unlimited plans to construct what will be the first tuna hatchery in North America -- and only the third in the world -- in the San Diego Bay area.

A new grant from the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) and ongoing support from the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff program will allow Ichthus to establish the hatchery project, led by the latter's president, Alejandro Buentello.

It will cultivate Pacific bluefin tuna eggs, raise them to juvenile fish and distribute them to tuna farms to be raised to market maturity. "This aquaculture system will improve the sustainability and quality of tuna production. It also will stimulate economic growth, as bluefin tuna species alone generate an estimated value of $2 billion to $2.5bn per year globally," the firms said.

Regional snowmaking expansions a growing concern


An environmental group is raising concerns that the cumulative impacts of numerous snowmaking expansion projects proposed or underway at ski areas throughout the region are not being adequately evaluated by the U.S. Forest Service.

Snowmaking is both a cause of and a response to climate change, Wilderness Workshop argues in an objection filed in response to the White River National Forest's approval of Aspen Skiing Co.'s project to expand snowmaking and terrain on Aspen Mountain.

The Carbondale-based nonprofit's objection requested the Forest Service withdraw its November decision in support of the Aspen Mountain project so that a "programmatic environmental impact statement" (EIS) can be drafted looking at the bigger picture. The objection focuses on impacts of increased river depletions to endangered fish in the Colorado River, changes to runoff patterns and increased energy use associated with the system expansions.

The American Battlefield Trust has closed on a key acquisition in northerneastern Culpeper County that spans 200 acres of fiercely fought-over Civil War battleground, including more than 5,000 feet of Rappahannock River frontage .

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit preservation group bought the 12-acre "Culpeper Crossing" site fronting U.S. 29 from Culpeper developer Bob Currier for $1.8 million. He had previously rezoned the land for commercial use, once envisioning it for various tourist attractions, including a butterfly conservatory and a living-history village.
