Suction mining on streams that provide salmon and steelhead habitat is counterproductive to our fish restoration goals. Many of the places that hold gold are also spawning beds for fish. If you destroy the spawning bed, you're destroying future fish. Allowing a few people to benefit from the gold in a stream at the expense of the fish habitat is socially, biologically and economically irresponsible.
