Why does that matter to you? Yes I am an indigenous citizen of Canada, my ship is registered in Panama - flag of convenience.

The sentence that you quoted was directed at the OP; not at you.

Doubt away; it doesn't matter to me. I'd forgotten about the trollers since there are so few of them left. Most of them gave it up years ago because there's no money in it.

Kind of pathetic that Alaska allows foreign vessels to fish in their waters...or did you stay in the high seas?

Actually, unless something's changed in the last couple of years, foreign vessels are not allowed to fish Alaskan waters, so I'm curious about what your troller was doing fishing out of Sitka.

Actually I didn't post anything different than here. It was a question to the Hawaiians. If they want stick their heads in the sand - let 'em. When that current swings back their way, I hope the Alaskans have the good sense to not let them land on your shores. I've been in contact with our officials and they are on top of it. If nothing happens, nothing happens.

But, if something does - it wasn't like you weren't informed...........

Again, you still have yet to provide anything legit concerning your original claim that Alaska salmon have been contaminated.

All that you and the other Canadians have done here is post old news from your BC fish farm shills along with wild personal speculation.

Doesn't look like the Hawaiians took you very seriously either.

LOL -- you've gotta be a paid forum poster for the BC fish farming industry. That's the only explanation that I can think of for this bs thread.

Mod Cut I haul groceries to Alaska and gasoline back out. I happen to know for a fact that the BC farmed fish have more contaminates than wild caught fish. The Hawaiians will not set foot on our territorial soil here, I can guarantee you that.

Induchman thanks for the article. It's right on the money. Also noted in a related article that Chernobyl is still as dangerous as Bikini atoll.

You seem a little paranoid. Why are you guaranteeing that the Hawaiians won't set foot on territorial soil? Are you concerned that radioactive Hawaiians will come to Canada?

So -- nothing but name calling when you can't back up your allegations about Alaska salmon being contaminated. Again, do you have any legit sources for that, or are you going to continue to dodge the question? I find it rather strange that you come here posting some very questionable sources and then start sputtering insults when someone questions you.

It would be hard to find a news source that isn't contaminated (pun intended). What matters is the reality. If I were there I would buy a salmon at the dock take it to the public health office and have it tested. Otherwise we are all just pissing into the wind.....well maybe not all of us.

There is a site called the radiation network, I believe, that is tracking radiation across the country . these are private individuals not government doing this on their own.
If you buy a giger counter that uses a disk, not a tube ,it will be sensitive enough to pick up the radiation in food .
I don't have all the answers but if you study up on the different manufacturers you will learn volumes, including how to hook up with the network.
the government shut down the collage sites along the coast 2011.last readings.
the good giger counters run about $500. ,lesser ones run about $200. roughly
Mine is not as sensitive as I should have invested, big mistake.
Prices have gone down to normal again , not likely to go much lower, due to demand.
Don't drag your feet though.
