Common spills in an urban environments are mostly made up of construction-based activities, such as paint, drywall compound, concrete wash, sediment pumping,concrete sealant etc. Other types of spills such as oil, diesel, hydraulic fluid, coolant etc come from the roadways and lead into our catch basins. The worst is when you have someone dumping direct directly Into the catch basin a chemical that reaches a creek very fast. At my workplace, weve developed software to maximize the response time to a spill by highlighting its catchment area, which allows us to concentrate quickly on the defined area.  Stream keepers and public by far are the quickest source as they call immediately as they walk creeks
thank you for sharing! If you are hiring for entry level position, let me know I might be interested

Anyone looking to part their Sage 2106 blank? Looking to build a casting rod.

Thanks

So that's a no.
I agree we should not be complacent, however imo there are far greater dangers to Pacific salmon, especially Fraser fish.
I also personally know DFO'S lead scientist who works on this issue and have huge respect for his integrity. In other words I believe him over Almo and the others with their anti salmon farming rhetoric.

Well absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence. Likewise one or even more studies that fail to produce a statistically significant result does not eliminate the possibility of causation. Such results don't in and of themselves indicate anything. They just fail to find a significant relationship.  That's something learned in a basic grounding in experimental design often lacking even at the grad school level. Much of what been has been said to dismiss PRV as a threat to salmon is based on logical fallacies.

According to the latest genetic studies PRV has been in the Pacific for about 30 years. Has the number of salmon gone up, down or remained static over that time period? If you agree it's gone down there needs to be careful thought given to issues like PRV and jaundice syndrome.

Personally I don't think it is wise to write off any possible factor without serious study.

PRV has shown it can infect chinook, coho and rainbow/steelhead at minimum.

PRV is associated with jaundice in salmon. Jaundice is not a disease it's a symptom of a underlying physiological issue such a blocked bile duct or liver damage or failure. I can be a symptom of a very serious condition. It may also may impede development, survival in the wild and spawning success and have a significant effect on population levels. Many necropsies do find damage to the liver and spleen. 

Jaundice syndrome is also not unique to salmon. Almost every study of fish with jaundice syndrome can't identify a casual agent though most suspect a virus. Infectivity studies that inject live materiel from diseased fish into healthy fish often don't produce a significant infection rate in the healthy specimens.


That could because by the time the jaundice occurs the casual agent is no longer transmissible.

Please keep in mind we have just had a 3 year crash course on how quickly viruses can mutate and dodge the efforts of medicine to control their spread. Let's not be complacent.

Excellent. Glad to hear things worked out. When I think about it, yes, the drier/cleaner the roller clutch bearing - the better! Thanks for circling back and letting us know the results!

how can it be proven there are zero moralities in the wild?
I am not aware of any documented PRV induced mortalities, are you?

I deal with spills every day at work in the neighbouring city to Burnaby !  Hopefully their Env Dept is able to positively trace this source to owner and throw huge fines at them and have that go to re establishing this stream !  Fish kills are not common in most spills so they get A LOT OF MEDIA ATTENTION .  Its a frustrating job when u cant find a source and you have upside down fingerlings, urban creeks really have it bad

would you mind sharing more info on common spills, where they come from, effects ect? Would be great to know what's effecting us here locally and thanks in advance

Excellent point, one I had not considered.  Not sure if the European strain of PVR causing all the fuss would be considered endemic yet but certainly there would be some form of immunity, thus the zero known mortalities?

how can it be proven there are zero moralities in the wild?
