Coalition Submits Comments on Hatchery Policy

The California Hydropower Reform Coalition and Pacific Northwest region of the Hydropower Reform Coalition submitted comments this Friday, November 12, 2004 on the National Marine Fisheries Service's proposed hatchery policy. The policy proposes to consider hatchery fish the same as wild fish under Endangered Species Act protections, and will downgrade the quality of protection measures for endangered fish in the hydropower licensing process.For more on the hatchery policy, visit the Why Wild website.
