Oregon fisheries are in the death grip of hatcheries. In a few more years all the hatchery salmon will be midgets. Shrinking salmon is well documented.It only takes one cycle of hatchery life to make genetic changes in these fish.The grand hatchery plan is not working.
Clean up the rivers and keep the herbicides and pesticides out. Storm water is polluted and should be cleaned. Get rid of Class C & B sewer plants. Every sewer plant should be Class A. All cities should separate the storm water and sewers.
