In Vancouver I made the decision to forego the use of seeds exclusively and instead create a few Ice Books with a colorful vocabulary comprised of small bright pink krill, because the traditional food chain had been disrupted due to lack of krill for the herring to feed upon, which in turn feed the salmon. Vancouverites are very much hoping for the salmon to return to Senakw Staulk (False Creek) and elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest.
