The commission should investigate whether some 2009 sockeye waited until this year to return.

Did some of the 2009 sockeye simply wait for another year before swimming up the Fraser River?

I have heard that DFO is testing this years sockeye, and have found a lot that are 5 years old (instead of 4 years). Could some of the 34 million sockeye that returned this year just have waited for some unknown reason until this year to spawn?

I suggest the Cohen Commission look into this. Perhaps it should have been 24 million this year and 12 million last year. If that’s the case, then I guess the Commission can rest and save us taxpayers a lot of money.
