Default Can silly regulation really protect wild coho?

With hundreds or thousand of seal lion in the bay, Can stupid regulation of no wild coho in the bay really protect wild coho? I landed 3 wild Coho bank fishing in Alsea Bay so far this year, 100%; 3 out of 3 all been eaten by seal lion shortly after release....I think releasing wild fish in ocean could save the fish but not in the bay... The best way to protect wild fish is to trim down the seal population

What about you guys? How many wild coho you release in the bay swimming away safely? And how many become free meal to seal lion?

DGB.... Yup... “best science available.” Problem is, best science available isn’t the best science.

Yes regulation is needed to protect our ability to survive on this planet, this includes regulating the # of predators allowed to prey on our beloved fish stocks, we all know some regulation is usually more good than bad, we just can't agree on what needs to be regulated, how much regulation is needed, & what does not need regulated, deregulation may be good for the bottom line, it's terribly bad for just about everything else.

Don't worry about a thing.
Up here on the Columbia River, regardless of Sealion predation they close sport fishing and allow a gillnet fishery that kills everything.
No worries, been going on for decades.
