A young tribal fisherman holds lamprey at the bottom of Willamette Falls during the annual lamprey harvest Friday, July 13, 2012, along the Willamette River, in Oregon City, Ore. As long as Indians have lived in the Northwest, they have looked to lamprey for food. This jawless fish popularly known as an eel has steadily declined until Columbia Basin tribes have just a few places left to go for lamprey. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
