Hi all,

Dave mischaracterizes my ~ 24 hours of sworn deposition testimony and suggests that silence was an option when indeed it was not. Read the more than 600 pages and talk to someone who was there to form your own worthwhile opinion. For what it's worth, CSPA's attorney --- who was there for most of my deosition --- told me that the Plaintiff's lawyers were quite pissed off with my testimony.

Dave also suggests that "sum total of analysis as it pertains to striped bass predation on endangered species is not conclusive, nor is there anything resembling a consensus of opinion" and implies that --- as a result --- no management action or policy discussion is warranted. I have indeed compiled and presented a vast amount of pertinent literature and it represents the genuine level of uncertainty. If that level of uncertainty proves too great for action, so be it. We will have done an honest job.

Take care
