Cormorant Hunters prepare to kill 9,000 breeding pairs on East Sand Isle

Cormorants take up to 20 million young salmon before they even get to the sea....

Cormorants take up to 20 million young salmon before they even get to the sea….

Push is coming to “BANG!” on the Columbia River next month as government hunters start to “cull the flocks” of Cormorants whose numbers have skyrocketed since river dredging created a new island at the mouth of the Columbia River on which cormorants produce their young.

Initially there were only a few hundred breeding pairs to help themselves to the salmonoids making their way down the Columbia to the sea. But today that figure has swelled to nearly 15,000. And commercial and private charter fishing operations are worried not only that there are far fewer salmon growing into adults at sea to be harvested, but also about the return rate of salmon to their native rivers and streams to spawn.

The story is in The Oregonian. Click here.
