I just want to express my disagreement and actual disappointment with the cover story about sea otters posing "great" risk to Alaska fisheries ("Sea otters pose big threat to Southeast fisheries," by Laine Welch, Sept. 2). It seems like the perfect scapegoat - get the people mad at sea otters for eating fish and other marine invertebrates. They're sea otters, that's what they do. It's like blaming a child for drinking its mother's milk. The most severe, and riskiest, impact on Alaska fisheries is us. People.
