If I have said this once I have said it a thousand times. The cormorant is federally protected do to the fact that they were put on the endangered species list over 30 years ago. It seems to me that the first thing we have to do is get the bird removed from the list so we can deal with it in the areas it needs to be dealt with. This nonsense of studying the ways to control cormorants over a vast area only impead the effort, when we could be spending our time and money on correcting the problem where it needs correcting. We do this with all of the other species on the endangered species list, so why are we not doing it with the cormorant. Pat Waite , Canton MI.3/9/2006 3:33:22 AM
