The spring Chinook season is starting to pick up at Bonneville Dam, and the number of sea lions is also increasing. The hungry animals snap up the fish as they try to go into the fish ladder.   Charles Hudson with the Columbia Inter-Tribal Fish Commission says they've just launched four underwater cameras to help keep track of the sea lions that eat the most fish. Hudson says the Sea Lion Removal Program they had in place was blocked, and they are currently in the process of working to get it back. The concern is that the sea lions are eating much more than estimates from opposition groups.
