demonized trash fish finally gets some respect
Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) staff members process Pacific lamprey before they haul them past Bonneville Dam, June 30, 2021. In fact, CRITFC transported the largest-ever number of lamprey upriver for the Umatilla, Yakama and Nez Perce tribes to release into tributaries in the upper Columbia and Snake River basins in 2021. CRITFC collected and transported 5,714 fish with less than one percent mortality. (U.S. Army photo by Chris Gaylord)
