Sea Lions

Re "Battle With Sea Lions Turns Deadly," June 17:

Jim Lecky, chief of the protected species division of National Marine Fisheries Service Southwest division, is quoted as saying sea lions "steal a lot of fish from fishermen."

Au contraire! It is the fishermen who steal a lot of fish from the sea lions! After all, the sea is their domain. If the fishermen and their customers don't like it, let 'em eat cake!

* If the fishing industry would stop killing off all the predators of the sea, e.g., sharks, they wouldn't have such a problem with the sea lion population explosion. Sheesh! Get in tune with the balance of nature, guys!
