Angler: Fish such as suckers, shiners, and chubs are neither fun to catch nor good to eat. They should be eliminated from mountain ponds to make way for trout.

Fish and Game Commissioner: The state's policy is to preserve any aquatic ecosystems that are indigenous to a given area. Interfering with fish populations in these ponds would violate this policy.

Which of the following, if true, would cast most doubt on the Fish and Game Commissioner's position that the angler's proposal is a violation of state policy?

(A) The suckers, shiners, and chubs in mountain ponds are descendants of fish brought to those ponds by anglers for use as bait in catching the once abundant trout.
(B) The state's policy of preserving natural aquatic ecosystems favors the interests and hobbies of one group of people over those of other groups.
(C) Suckers, shiners, and chubs are dull, unattractive fish with none of the graceful beauty of trout.
(D) People who fish in mountain ponds have a deeper appreciation of nature than do people who never visit such areas.
(E) A large percentage of the fish in mountain ponds could be eliminated and replaced with trout without seriously disturbing any plants or animals in the surrounding woodlands.
