Article on KUOW's EarthFix Highlights Growing Awareness of Hatchery Impacts



With the holidays we missed posting this earlier, but we wanted to pass along a link to an interesting and important article on KUOW's EarthFix, highlighting the growing groundswell of opposition to the impacts on ongoing industrial scale hatchery production throughout the Pacific Northwest. The article is accompanied by a short radio feature that discusses the ongoing wild gene bank designation process. It also touches on ongoing lawsuits on the Elwha, Sandy and McKenzie Rivers, challenging hatchery programs that jeopardize ESA listed populations of salmon and steelhead.
