    Yes, and without getting into various other issues such as sea lice from fish farms, etc., hatcheries could/ would be effective if they released juveniles reared to smolt stage.

    What's the point if they can't control legal and illegal netting coupled with the expansion of fish farms.

    Get these areas under control then maybe you can think about hatcheries and restocking programs.

    Default conference on hatcheries

    There has been a hatchery on the ballinderry now for the best part of 25 years and I don't see much difference in the river now and what it was like back then for both salmon and trout . Maybe it's down till who's running the hatchery and whether or not they are seeding out the fry into the same river or not ? Just take a look at lough erne and the great taking trout the marble arch hatchery is putting out

    I hope to get there but expect that it may generate more heat than light. I remember someone at a meeting likening the attitude of some fishery scientists to hatcheries as being on a par with a 1980s cardinal's views on test tube babies...........
