farm bred salmon invasion

In the book they were talking about how in the lower 48 states they were putting fish from fish hatcheries in the rivers and the fish hatchery fish drove the wild salmon to extinction. I think we need to do a better job and put more research into what we do to help the salmon population. If we were to be more careful then we wouldnt have to spend even more money trying to fix our mistakes with the rivers.

 

One thought on “farm bred salmon invasion”

  1. If I remember correctly, didn’t Greenberg say that there was somebody who was working on a better way to have fish born in hatcheries that made it in the wild to boost stocks without driving the wild stock to extinction? I wholeheartedly agree with you, though, that there should be more care and research to help try and fix the salmon runs.
