The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is one small step closer to figuring out the difference between how many offspring hatchery fish produce versus wild stock. The department released the second batch of results as part of a long-range study. But there’s some disagreement over how much weight the results should carry.

Especially when the early results suggest that hatchery fish are inferior to wild fish and data suggesting that could threaten Alaska’s hatchery welfare state.
