red squid and other target species But steelhead and salmon also are found in pockets of cold water and catching them is illegal said Dexter Pitman anadro-mous fish coordinator for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Ana-dromous refers to fish that go from salt water to fresh water to spawn such as salmon shad and steelhead warm-water species run smack dab into the cold-water he said hard to set regulations for the pockets of cold water that are chinook salmon usually follow the coast to Alaska while steelhead migrate to the ocean south of Aleutian Islands The illegal drift-net boats may stray 400 miles north of the international boundaries to catch salmon in that area The number of fall steelhead returning to Idaho is up somewhat from last year because cooler weather has caused them to swim upriver faster But the population of fish now plying Idaho waters is far smaller than in the past officials say The illegal catches of migratory US and Canadian fish came to light in 1986-1987 during a crackdown by agency on on the West Coast Tons of salmon were being transferred from Taiwan to Seattle or San Francisco then given fraudulent US documentation so they could be legally shipped to Japan which has outlawed Taiwanese imports of high-seas salmon In one breakthrough NOAA covertly arranged to buy 500 metric tons of salmon from a Taiwanese merchant Lewis said But
