The Tiny Tasty Delta Smelt now being Canned at secret locations in California's Central Valley

Apparently the farmers in California have had enough when it comes to the tiny Delta Smelt---a fish put on the endangered species list because of actions by environmental activist groups.  As a result, the state of California has diverted millions of gallons of water from the farms in the Central Valley resulting in the closing of hundreds of farms and bringing the unemployment rate to the highest level not seen since the days of the Great Depression.  But now the farmers are fighting back.  It has been reported that at several locations somewhere in the foothills of the High Sierra's secret canning factories have been established for the sole purpose of containing the spread of this minnow-like pest and confining it to tin cans.  One farmer was heard to say, "hell it's them or us, after all the government in Washington was trying to can us!  We just got to them first"!

To add insult to injury cans of this tiny fish are now being sold to San Francisco elites.  Among those buying this exotic delicacy are the same environmentalist who had lobbied for this minnow-like fish to be put on the EPA's endangered species list.  Apparently the secret canneries operating in the Sierra's have labeled their catch as farm-raised sardines untouched by those terrible fishing nets that ensnare innocent sea turtles and dolphins.  Causing this canned delight to be in great demand by members of the Sierra Club and those in Silicon Valley.  See even in California good things occasionally happen.
