Re: Baby Barnacles

No, you misunderstood the law. The native tribes are still allowed a limited harvest, but they have to harpoon them from polar bear skin canoes. The real problem isn't the desire to hold the hunt....it's more that party season has begun, and the companies that used to supply harpoons of that size have converted their works to the more lucrative cocktail fork industry.

Damb shame, really. Our sea-going traditions are wasting away in front of our eyes.
