There are divers who say they like to swim freely with large sharks to dispel perceptions that sharks are blood-thirsty predators, and there are divers who counter that these people are mostly thrill-seeking showoffs who are risking their lives and not doing sharks any favors.

In the winter of 1996, a series storm and flood events blew out old roads in the mountainous region of the Clearwater National Forest. The failure of those abandoned logging roads resulted in large amounts of fine sediment fouling critical salmon and steelhead stream habitat.
The abandoned roads that crisscrossed the landscape were thought to be stable since they were overgrown with vegetation. Not only were they not stable, but outside of large storm events, they had a negative impact on fish by significantly changing the hydrology of the landscape and allowing sediment into streams.
After identifying the problem as one of the key limiting factors for increasing abundance of salmon and steelhead in the area, the Nez Perce Tribe teamed with the U.S. Forest Service and BPA to address the issue in multiple central Idaho watersheds.
Bull Trout (Salvelinus confluentus) are a long lived, apex predator native to the Pacific Northwest, migrating from tiny tributaries to main stem sections throughout the changing seasons. Known for their aggressive nature by fly fishermen, underwater they are calm and confident.
