Volcanoes - Bad for Fishing

MSNBC reports that an overlfow of volcanic material from an Alaska mountain might be the cause of the lack of salmon in the King Salmon River. It seems the increased acidity of the water makes it impossible for the salmon to recognize the smell of home. Another side effect is that if they did show up it would also kill them. "I think if there were fish in there when the event happened, they got toasted," said state commercial fishing biologist Paul Salomone. (I promise I did not make up his last name)
