While there has been a long history of salmon hatchery
operations throughout the North Pacific, only recently have we
begun to investigate how hatchery salmon interact with their wild
counterparts. This volume represents our latest understanding of
the scale and magnitude of effects of hatcheries on wild salmon
populations, and begins to lay the groundwork for precautionary
fisheries management to ensure that wild salmon are conserved.

"Research on hatchery and wild salmonid interactions is
increasing exponentially and this book provides a synthesis of what
researchers believe today. Of greatest importance is that it shows
how little we know. Mart Gross, University of Toronto, Canada"
"Wild and hatchery salmon interactions are key to understanding
human impacts on the North Pacific ecosystem. This publication
represents an important step in understanding both the benefits and
the risks. Vladimir Radchenko, Pacific Scientific Research
Fisheries Center, TINRO Center, Russia"
"Through careful case histories, creative manipulative
experiments, and impressive quantitative modeling, scientists and
managers have come together to publish this touchstone work, work
simply indispensable to our continuing efforts to bring the salmon
back . Roy Stein, Ohio State University, USA"
"This book will become required reading for scientists and
managers around the world dedicated to the conservation of wild
salmon. Hideaki Kudo, Hokkaido University, Japan""
