There is, or was, another aspect of WB that may figure in. Koenings wanted to grow as many Chinook as possible in the WB hatcheries, mark them, and have BC fish selectively for them. That way, WDFW would feed the BC fisheries but if they went selective then our wilds would be protected some. I think DFO said no, but swarming BC with hatchery Chinook would provide some buffer.
