Riverrat, the state is aware of the situation with CORMORANTS! The problem is they are federally protected. The was a news paper article written not long ago on cormorants and it was stated that the state does plan on doing something. They just dont know what they are going to do! You asked the question what could we do to hurry the state????Once these critters destroy all the Islands, they will move to the shoreline where the multimillion dollor homes are. Once this happens, something will be done. What gets me is they are not native to Northern Alabama. In my opinion, the birds should have never been allowed to reproduce like they have. Years ago the state did not have any problems doing something about the black bird roosting problem (starlings,sp?). These birds are not native to North Alabama either. Why are they not considered a protected species?
