In this chapter, I think Greenberg meant that Yupik people were going in the same direction as the wild salmon. Parallel meaning that they are both interconnected, and that they both rely on each other. As they also have an affect on each other, good and bad. Just like mammals, the Yupik people rely on salmon as a main food source as they have for 10,000 years. As Greenberg mentioned, ” Yearly stocking may become as imperative for their survival as food stamps are to the Yupik.” Meaning without any sort of outside management, the population of future wild salmon could vanish forever. I agree that there needs to be certain regulations in place, to prevent a mass irruption in the species. I agree to a certain extent, because like it says in the passage, “There is no real certain way to test to see if we’ve gone too far. ” The only way would be to stop stocking Alaskan rivers, and then see what happens, but even that is detrimental. It is detrimental if the “wild” Alaskan runs disappear after we interfere by not stocking the rivers. I think Greenberg will learn a lot more as he goes into his investigation and does more research, but I think as far as where his head is at right now, that hes definitely not wrong. The Yupik people definitely pose a great impact on the Wild salmon, as salmon do in return. So, yes I would say that they are very parallel to each other, because the future is dependent upon them both.
