    Our local paper (The Eugene Register Guard) ran this articles a couple of days ago:

     

    http://www.registerguard.com/rg/sports/outdoors/31075741-80/hatchery-fish-caught-steelhead-alsea.html.csp

     

    on slective breeding of salmon and steelhead (trout that go to the ocean like salmon) to be more or less likely to get hooked by a fisherperson.

    Goals:

    Better (easier) fishing

    More separation of fishery breed fish genetics from that of the native population’s genetics. Fishery breed fish genetics are thought to degrade the local population’s genetics due to genetics from different locations and from selection of fish in the fisheries for traits not necessarily advantageous to the native population.

    Sounds like a waste of precious resources to me. The aim should be the preservation of the species(wild!), not fish that are easier to catch. Thanks for sharing Bill.
