Catching Salmon -

In the woods...

Hi, Everyone: I'm here at stream side where insulated metal boxes have been installed on the river banks. As you can see, the local bears are filling them with salmon. When a bear puts his fresh catch in the top of the box, a bowl of porridge comes out of a chute on the side.

With me now is Phil Fobus of Northwest Fisheries. Phil, I hear there is a thriving market for bear-caught salmon.

"That is correct, Bob. Chains like Whole Groceries cater to a clientele that prefers more a more natural method of harvesting. Net-caught salmon, and line-caught salmon leave a big carbon footprint. Not so much with bear-caught salmon. Just some tracks in the mud."

Bradly M. - I hear they're out-sourcing this to China because pandas will work for less.
