More than half a dozen medium sized yellow golden fish laid out

The return of the zaxven

It has been an honour to share in the return of the zaxven, the ooligan, in Wuikinuxv this year. Our friends and colleagues here have shared this amazing fish with our crew over dinners this spring. Nice to know the zaxven were back home in the Wanukv river.

Thanks to the great work of Wuikinuxv Fisheries staff like @cetm26, we can learn more about what set this year apart and how well the spawners did.
