"Is Extinction Inevitable?"

About a month ago I wrote about what is happening to wild coho in Tarboo Bay on Hood Canal here.

Today Doug Rose posted on his blog more about the serious situation concerning the time, money, and energy spent restoring a creek may be for nothing due to what can only be described as "appalling" management of salmon stocks in Hood Canal.

Doug's post is a must read for anyone interested in why wild salmon struggle when fisheries are managed solely for hatchery fish.  Sometimes I am amazed at what continues to be done in the name of "fisheries management."  I must have gone back in time, because bad decisions like this still cannot be happening in 2011.
