WILD PACIFIC SALMON: A THREATENED LEGACY

 By Jim Lichatowich, Rick Williams Bill Bakke, Jim Myron, David Bella, Bill McMillan Jack Stanford and David Montgomery

 

" .. Salmon are a part of nature’s trust, which creates a special obligation for the governmental agencies charged with their management. They must act as trustees of the wild salmon and protect them consistent with the long-standing public trust doctrine. Their obligation is to maintain the wild salmon legacy in good health for citizen beneficiaries of present and future generations. Salmon managers have abrogated that responsibility and have converted prudent management of the wild salmon to the production of commodities for the benefit of sport and commercial fisheries. This amounts to privatization of the trust."
