The ability of kokanee salmon to survive in marginal habitats such as Florence and Upper Bass lakes has implications for understanding the response of the species to environmental impacts that will likely reduce habitat suitability for coldwater lake species, especially increasing lake eutrophication and a warming climate (e.g., Colby et al., 1972; Ficke et al., 2007; Berge, 2009; Martins et al., 2011; Young, 2016).

If we started from scratch, with public health instead of government revenue maximization in mind, it's unlikely we'd devise a system where the taxes and retail markup on cooking sherry are one-third what they are for a more peaceable glass of shiraz--or that we would impose the same net tax and markup on a can of Kokanee that we do on a bottled Caesar that has 50 per cent more alcohol.
