It is fair to say that a combination of C&R, habitat improvment, hatcheries and buyouts of inshore nets provide excellent safeguard to the future of our salmon stocks. However, in my opinion not enough praise (in general)is given to the successful efforts of the NASF buying out offshore salmon nets(especially from some National fishing magazines).
Without their contribution, I am sure that efforts to save International salmon stocks would be a complete up hill struggle.
It is not because thing are difficult that we dare not venture.
