<< Regarding all the discussion and opposition that has been voiced on this

Should we not be doing what we can for NATIVE fishes?
I don't remember the words but there used to be a saying or poem to the
effect that I didn't say anything when they came for the Jews because I
wasn't a Jew, I didn't say anything when they cam for the Catholics because I
wasn't a Catholic and I didn't say anything when they came for the Baptists
because I wasn't a Baptist so when they cam e for me there wasn't anyone left
to help because they had already came for every one else. That has
applications that go beyond religion, politics, or even hobbies. Together we
stand divided we fall, and as long as we allow the little things to divide us
there is no hope for any collective action.
