The film (interview) probably was taken more than 20 years ago. Despite the less understanding of the genetic impact from the hatchery fish, the professor in the film already mentioned that the less the alternation of genetic structural (hatchery fish) the better. Reduce habitat degradation would be the better way to improve the fishery.
I will trade all my fancy gears with a day fishing in the skeena river in it's 1960'. Use a click and pawl reel and fiberglass rod... how sad... I always a bit late to fish the golden period...
I wrote this in the blog last year, still feel the sadness.
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
