I produced this program for Salmon For All, a non-profit organization supporting gillnet fishermen on the Columbia River. We wanted to show the efforts that individual gillnetters are making to help save wild salmon from extinction while harvesting hatchery salmon. They use a "live recovery box" which revives the wild fish before they are thrown back into the river. They also use a net with a smaller mesh, which prevents fish from entangling their gills and drowning. Yes, fish can drown! Hatchery fish are identified by the absence of their adipose fin, which is removed when the fish are juveniles in the hatchery. Sports fishermen are critical of commercial fishermen because they'd rather have all the fish for themselves.
