RE:FRANKENFISH - NOT!

I am by no stretch of the imagination conversant in the facts of this issue but from a selfish and gut level my response is a big "YES" to anything that puts another nail in the coffin of the negligent comercial and native american harvest of our native stocks. Too many times have I visited a place teaming with salmon one day to arrive a couple days later to find the bottom strewn with hundreds of dead male salmon. The females have the eggs and are more valuable so the males are thrown back to keep under the quota as long as possible. Surely something should be done about the serious problems involved in fish farming and I'll throw some elbow grease into the effort to make that happen but I don't want that effort to kill the future of the business. Have there been any cost/benefit studies concerning fish farming?
