Anti-Environmentalists Appeal Hatchery Fish Decision

As expected, the Pacific Legal Foundation, a poorly cloaked developer and business rights lobbying group (see Sourcewatch), yesterday appealed the recent decision by a federal judge that prohibits the counting of hatchery-raised salmon with wild fish when determining the health of U.S. west coast salmon populations. “Mark Taylor, president of the Washington council of Trout Unlimited, was not surprised by the appeal, but he was confident his side would prevail. ‘I think Judge Coughenour’s decision will be upheld and it should be. All the science is on our side,’ Taylor added.” Article by the Associated Press.
