Overfishing impacts herring in the Gorge

Re: Where have all the herring gone? (News, Feb. 13)

In the article, the comment, “It was nothing to get buckets full of fish out of here,” and yet he wonders where all the fish have gone?

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Seriously? Even in small amounts, if enough people take from our natural resources, eventually we will be left with nothing.

Why are people so determined to point a finger of blame towards others instead of realizing that we are all responsible for the depletion of our natural resources.

It has been proven over and over that when an animal becomes protected it eventually can build its population.

My final thought to this article is: have these people stopped fishing off the Gorge therefore becoming a part of the solution, or are they continuing to fish accepting that they are a part of the problem?
