Panel: Efforts to save salmon not enough
Some $3 billion a year is spent in
the Pacific Northwest to restore salmon runs
Some $3 billion a year is
spent in the Pacific Northwest to restore salmon
runs, according to some rough guesses. On Wednesday,
members of a panel said most of that activity isn't
doing much good.
Of the nine speakers, including retired professor Ben Stout of Albany, each had a different prescription for what should be done so that there are still wild salmon and steelhead runs in 2100.
Robert T. Lackey, a
biologist with the Environmental Protection Agency
and OSU, who organized the panel, said the take-away
line from the discussion was that whatever is now
being done isn't working.
