Letter: Drone salmon doom sustainability

October 30, 2013 

I read your story regarding our commercial fisherman claiming a harvest sustainability. Unfortunately many of us know that our commercial fisheries are not sustainable and are instead dumping around 1.5 million drone hatchery salmon into our ocean annually. 

Those drone salmon then compete for food beside around half a million wild salmon annually. This sets up a 3-1 mismatch ratio which has our wild salmon on the ropes and that is why everything wild living in our ocean is currently suffering. Billions of drone salmon are being unleashed against wild Alaska and they all feed on the same things.
