Wonderful!? Summer steelhead runs have been down the last two summers, the fish farms have been fined for doing illegal things, and then they get rewarded by the government through having the fines "rebated" (what a term for simply forgiving them for doing illegal things) so they can continue on with business as usual. When was the last time you got a "rebate" for something as simple as a speeding ticket for going 6 miles/hour over the posted limit on the freeway? Don't you just love the way politicians and judges think when an industry gives them some cash for an election.
