Dave Super was a Karuk fisherman based in Requa, Jefferson. He owned the boat Sweetheart on Parade, and his kid brother Pete served as his only crew. Like many of the Karuk fisherman in Requa and other coastal towns, the Supers were angered by the merfolk's increased taking of salmon at the mouth of the Klamath River. In 1980, the Supers ferried Governor Bill Williamson out to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to meet with the merfolk and hopefully settle the dispute.
Prior to the meeting, the Supers expressed a great deal of vitriol towards the merfolk. They also educated Williamson in the merfolk's use of animals such as dolphins and killer whales as "watchdogs" and "sheepdogs."
Super listened in on the negotiations. While he wasn't thrilled about the final proposal, he took it to Chief Steve Hobbs. He also shared the merfolk's warning that they would use their allies in the United States Navy SEALs against the Karuk if the fishermen interfered or attacked the merfolk.
