Too Much Money Being Spent On Connecticut River Salmon?

Burlington Free Press columnist Matt Crawford asks whether the hundreds of thousands of dollars being spent each year trying to restore Atlantic salmon to the Connecticut River shouldn’t be spent on more promising projects. “In the wake of the recent news that the federal stimulus package contained an $890,000 earmark for an electrical system upgrade for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s salmon hatchery on the White River in Bethel, it seems as good a time as any to re-examine the Connecticut River salmon restoration program.” (Thanks to reader Jim Phillips for this link.)
