Fire Director Unsworth and all Fish Management Personnel at WDFW

This petition had 870 supporters

Director Unsworth and all subordinate fish management employees have allowed the natural fishing resource in WA state to atrophy to an unsustainable condition. Director Unsworth and fish management staff have allowed foreign corporations to rear invasive species in State waters without any apparent concern for the impact to native species.

This is evidenced by the dwindling opportunities to harvest native species and the recent spill of up to 305,000 Atlantic salmon into WA state waters. Neither the dept as the permit issuer or the Cooke Corp had or has in place  a viable spill response and cleanup plan. These invasive Atlantic salmon have the potential to further destroy an already weak stock of native salmon.

Hold all responsible accountable; the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife as well as the Canadian Cooke Corporation. Fire the Department and run the Cooke Corp out of the country by levying substantial fines and permit revocation.
