Can Columbia River gillnet controversy be settled without adding more hatchery fish to the mix?

The face off between non-tribal gillnetters on the Columbia River and fishery regulators is heating up again, triggered by a ballot issue this November that would ban all such gillnet fishing in the river’s main stem. And if you read between the lines it appears that another controversial issue, introducing more hatchery fish into the river, may become the default solution. In fact it’s becoming more of a default solution in other rivers as well, including our own Yaquina River fishery. It’s one of those slow moving stories that pit wild stocks against hatchery-raised fish with all the debate over fishery research in the mix.

The story is in The Oregonian. Click here.
