It's a double edged sword because big plants require big harvests and wild fish cannot sustain the same harvest rates as the hatch product... unless you have a reliable low-impact means of SELECTIVELY harvesting the hatchery fish.

Thus far, the industry has virtually ZERO desire to move in that direction.
