How do we continue to think that we (humans) can fix or improve something mother nature has been doing for millions of years! Concrete tanks do not equal natural river beds. I understand the need for hatcheries, however, it would be a great day when all steelhead and salmon once again emerged from the gravel of their natal streams. Hatcheries are no substitute or fix to the problem of habitat degridation. Hatcheries may allow us to bridge the gap between the poor habitats we currently have and restored streams of the future, but for this to work we must concentrate a lot more effort on the restoration of natural systems. And many other beifits will follow!
