Was out on the Chehalis this morning. Only one freshly-dead Coho. (probably died of loneliness).
Anyhew, I noticed a big number of chum carcasses that had been cleanly cut in half. Is this a sign that they've been counted in by someone? I saw a show a few months back on Discovery channel called "Dirty Jobs" where the guy (forgot his name) was walking up a stream in Washington and the consternation officers were counting and then severing with a machete the dead fish. Is that done up here too?

DFO refers it as 'dead-pitch' and it is an enumeration methodology. When they cut them in half, they count both halves an dthen they can accurately claim the returns were twice as goods as everyone thinks they are :confused:

Yep, I did see them counting a couple of years ago in the Chehalis, that's what they do. Good they don't count the fisherman :happy:
