Lamprey Dangerfield
Two-dozen Pacific lamprey/Rodney Dangerfields attach themselves to a fish viewing window at Bonneville Lock and Dam as they make their way upstream. This fish from before the time of the dinosaurs is gruesome, scary, nightmare fuel or part of the “Upside Down” in Stranger Things … and because of those things, lamprey were like the Rodney Dangerfield of fish: They don’t get no respect. Lamprey are also important to Columbia Basin tribes because of their rich, fatty meat that provided a food source for during feasts and celebrations.
