>The Washington State Dept. of Fish and Wildlife would like your assistance
>in tracking El Nino. You can do this by reporting unusual fish, shellfish,
>or other marine life. Record as much info as possible such as date, time
>of encounter, and location. If a fish is caught, please record size,
>temperature of water, depth at which it was caught if possible.
>If you find an especially uncommon specimen, the WDFW asks that you freeze
>it for possible inclusion in the UW's fish collection.
>Send unusual records, photographs, or specimens to Wayne Palsson, WDFW
>Fisheries Biologist at:
>WDFW Mill Creek Office
>16018 Mill Creek Blvd.
>Mill Creek, WA 98012-1296
>or to
>Montesano Office, 48 Devonshire Rd., Montesano, WA 98563-9618
>or to WDFW, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501
>See website
>Look under News Releases for October 11th.
>NOAA's Climate Prediction Center forecasts a moderate El Nino affecting
>the Pacific Ocean this year. Because of El Nino, wildlife species are
>often found outside of their normal habitat.
