Bruce Brown on Hatcheries

Last month, as a follow up to a profile he wrote about Northwest author Bruce Brown, Ron Judd posted a short piece with some of Bruce Brown's thoughts on hatcheries. In 1982 Brown authored the now legendary book Mountain in the Clouds A Search for the Wild Salmon, a book which has served as a foundation for three decades of work to remove the Elwha dams and advocate for wild salmon. The debate about hatchery impacts on wild salmon is too often out of the public eye, yet hatcheries are among the biggest hurdles to the recovery of wild salmon in Washington State. Check out the story and the follow up in the Seattle Times:
