GOFISH said:Hey guys,
I believe this thread stems from the discussion in the "Bass Fishing Section."
I would hope that the discussion there doesn't spread to all the other sections of the forum and hope that a mod will move this one back there. eace:
If I catch a bass its as good as dead. Same for any pumpkin seed, crappie or perch. I'm not prepared to give up on our native fishes just so someone can go catch a mess of bass because its easier than properly managing trout/salmon/steelhead populations.jetboatjim said:Is it our role to help control invasive species? or should we just sit back and watch alot of hard work go down the tubes?
You are right, humans are the cause of all these invasive species, we brought them to BC in the first place. That said with our technology and intelect we can also serve to help right the wrongs we have done to the planet. Removing invasive species is one of many ways this can be accomplished.GOFISH said:We can talk about plants, animals, etc, etc Pat but probably the biggest invasive species and the root to this problem .......... is HUMANS.
Just as in the example of Bass : [sorry GOFISH], I'm sure they did not "hitchhike" unintentionally, therefore it would be unnatural for their introduction and answers your big question that most probably, think that they are above nature. It is only human nature ;D.If the migration of species by hitch hiking is a natural way of distributing species why is it unnatural when humans do it? Which lead to the big question are we part of nature or above it?
