I would like to offer a few comments in response to Mike Commins above. First, a pat on the back, your letters matter - and your support for NFS and TU. Second, as a retired fishery professional, I will tell you that in my experience decisions made by state and federal agencies with regard to hatcheries and harvest are driven primarily by political and legal concerns, not science, and certainly not the recovery of the species. However, there are laws (e.g. U.S. Endangered Species Act) that require agencies to employ the best available science in the decisions and actions they take. This distance between the best available science and agency actions is where litigation comes in and I have concluded that if we are to have fishery management that supports species recovery we anglers and our NGOs will have to use the courts to get it done. Hence, I would encourage all concerned anglers to support NGOs that have shown a willingness to go to court when necessary. That's where the action is.
