What is FEB?

Comes after JAN and before MAR.

No sign of the pink plague going away.

Nicer plague than the other one we've got. That's a perfect eater

Don’t need them, got plenty of perfectly good Atlantic Salmon (which are all bigger), grilse and sea trout. It’s the latter that worry me the most, I’m sure they don’t need competition for feeding in the sea.

As Tangled said. Fish Eating Birds which is easier than listing them. Generally applied to mean unwanted predators like cormorants and goosanders that historically either haven’t been present or were culled to control numbers much like deer.

Would it not be the record low river levels most places stopping them.Do they still move in to spawn in low water levels.

I saw on a piece on the BBC news tonight that some young Norwegian environmentalists are taking their government to court. In the report it clearly stated that global warming was helping pink salmon to breed in Norway bringing disease which could affect Atlantic Salmon.

So there you have it, absolute evidence.

Absolute evidence about what?
Pink salmon breeding in Norway? (they are a cold water species)
Global warming exists?
The pinks carry diseases?

Pinks are in Norway, not because of global warming, is because they were farmed in the areas relatively near, and can reach Norway.
They carry the same diseases as Atlantic salmon.
If global warming has an effect, atlantics would be affected the same.

Ahh, I see you were being as cynical as me!
However beeb airing the fact that pinks are here, might just be a good thing.
Downside will eco warriors gluing themselves to fishing bothies to complain about the pinks!
