Questions regarding above: 1. My understanding is pinnipeds are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and some under the ESA. Would legislation need to be passed in order to remove pinnipeds? 2. What is preventing hatcheries from producing larger Chinook? 5. If NOAA says this plan is acceptable, what is preventing us from doing so? How would we pay for an increase in hatchery production? Thanks for all your hard work, Ron!
