     SHOOT THE SEA LIONS -- NMFS

     The National Marine Fisheries Service on 3/28 recommended that
     Congress allow the shooting of sea lions in California, Oregon and
     Washington to protect endangered salmon.  The recommendation "marks
     the first time that a federal agency has broadly agreed with fisher[s]
     that there are too many sea lions and not enough salmon in Pacific
     waters."  Sea lions are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection
     Act (Paul Rodgers, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 3/29).
