Geneticists have developed techniques to allow one species of fish, through gonad transfers, to produce another. Success so far has been with salmon used as surrogate parents for trout.

Read all about it:

putting a bandaide over a festering wound and doing nothing about the real cause. There are good reasons why the sockeye are essentially extinct in the Clearwater and this technique does nothing to solve those problems.
