Anyway, I felt that this thread had gone far enough and it was time to
bring it to an end. Perhaps we can move on and ignore further posts on
this whole issue or else we are just going to create another email thread
with nothing to do with native fishes.

Well, Peter I think you are correct, it has started to degenerate into an
emotional issue with little or no real data to back any of us up. I have a
degree in statistics and I can pretty much prove anything with very little data.
I just wish we could discuss this issue without emotions and unsupported
assumptions getting in the way. Everyone seems to assume that any fish released
into a new water shed spells disaster or like me I doubt that is true-in-all.
Somewhere in there must be the truth and I still think that we could come up
with parameters that would predict the effects of a fishes release on a
streams ecology.
