If we were accustomed to pink salmon as our native fish, would the sudden appearance of Atlantic Salmon cause as much of a stir?

Just asking.

A major factor in the spread of pinks is their ability to exploit the road network and their expertise in using mind control over dogs which carry them to neighbouring river catchments.
