Letter: Salmon and dams

The Aug. 14 Guest Opinion of David Doeringsfeld, manager of the Port of Lewiston, said, “Record salmon and steelhead returns demonstrate the success from fish passage improvements over the past 20 years.” He, NMFS, BPA and various industries like to speak of “record” fish numbers. Such talk is based largely on recent returns of hatchery fish, not ESA-listed wild salmon and steelhead.
