The Truth About Sea Otter Expansion

If you enjoy shellfish in California you need to check this video out and share it. From the late 90s, but the information is still good. Remember that 2012 was the last year the CDFW would relocate otters. The Coho pipeline images should be enough to get you concerned.

That's a great video, hopefully it helps show people how destructive those little bastards are. They are aggressive as **** at night. Watch out! Ran into one in Santa Barbara once.

Take a badger, kick it in the jimmy and toss it in a kelp bed. That is how God made sea otters.

Re: The Truth About Sea Otter Expansion

Spray paint em yum yum yellow and haul em out to the Farallons.

I was fishing in a remote, boat in only part of West Vancouver Island this past Summer and every kelp bed had a few otters floating around in it. When I asked my guide how prevalent they were, he told me how they completely destroyed the Natives' shellfish fishery. They wiped out the crabs, clams, abs (pintos up there), urchins, etc.

Their solution? Living in a place not frequented by tourists, game wardens, or greenie f**ks, the guide said, "well, they hold hands when they sleep to keep from floating away. we like to drive through the kelp beds on our way home from fishing and prop chop a whole bunch in one go." Sounds good to me....

I'd like to have a complete get-up made from their fur from head to toe to match my beard.

Re: The Truth About Sea Otter Expansion

Bring the little furry guys down here just let the local fishing community hunt them and there will be no problems. But that will never happen

Re: The Truth About Sea Otter Expansion

Looking at the 2 munched sea otters at Jalama a few weeks ago, I think whitey may have found something else to eat besides seals.

~200 washed up from Morro to Pismo last year. Whitey is making a good dent.

You could pretty much kiss children's pool goodbye if they ever reached down there.

Luckily it is very rare for otters to haul out. They will just clean out the surfgrass of all those pesky baby lobsters. Your green abalone are making a solid comeback...nope! Have a secret pismo clam bed?...

Re: The Truth About Sea Otter Expansion

Thanks for posting that video. The heart of the problem is removing bipeadal, tool making, apex predators.

Ive been wanting a otter hoodie for a long time... You can order them from Canadia and the USSR...
