I ask again...what have YOU done, like Stealth Fox, BB, Washington and Midway...?

Nothing.
Do you ever read what you type before hitting Send? The 'next best thing' would obviously be to encourage them to stay within the law!

What is the answer then? Why not offer to help WUF if you have the answers?
Name one offence where police ever 'negotiate' with lawbreakers. Perhaps bankrobbers can rob banks Tues, Thursdays and Saturdays in your/WUFs world but not in mine. There's a clear line in the sand at Hay bridge....

Given the way we see many salmon handled before release I'd suggest taking an effective swab as well will markedly increase the chance if the fish dying. If you disagree, so be it.

On top of that you do understand why the mucas swabbed it there in the first place do you?

Errr... a creature which is able to adapt to new environments is exactly what is required in a migratory fish. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, or to be a scientist to understand that.
