  1. Hope that fish got tossed back in. It’s a protected Copper Rockfish. Should have been released immediately and not allowed to possibly flop on the deck like that. It probably took that fish two or three years just to get that big. They were over fished (commercial and sport) for many years and that’s why they are now protected. A five pound rockfish would typically be around 10 to 15 years old; unlike Pacific salmon that mature in two to four years. Takes many more years to replace a rockfish or true cod than to replace a salmon. A wonderful bottom fish resource was almost destroyed here by over fishing during mid 20th. century.


  2. Thank you for sharing these great pictures. We have so much to be grateful for living in Edmonds. Yes, people influence our community, but so does the landscape. It’s what makes Edmonds, Edmonds and why visitors from all over come to our city.

    And while I don’t live near the water or have a view of it from my home, when I do take the time to soak in where we live (even on the cloudy days) and all the natural beauty that surrounds us, I am reminded that we need to be good stewards of it.


  3. Good photos and important comments about the natural environment here in Edmonds. One thing I always become aware of while walking the water front is the number of people who sit in their cars with their engines running. Why be in side while your car is idling and adding to the air pollution even in the Summer? We need a city ordnance which is enforced by the police to prevent this practice as much as possible.
