Even though I like to do it once in a while, the tubers are the most damaging group out of all the river users.

We shouldn't generalize. Any damage can be eliminate by eco-friendly use. All users should clean up after themselves. Anglers should try not to leave behind fishing line, tubers and shore folk should clean up garbage, parents should keep their kids from catching and handling fish, dog owners should pick up after pets. Basically, just leave the river as it was before you got there. Smart use won't hurt the environment...ignorance and neglect does.
