"Wild salmon stocks in the north Pacific are being eroded as the fish are forced to compete for food and shrinking habitat with billions of hatchery fish released in to the oceans each year, a new study by scientists in B.C. and Washington state says.

This warning comes as the population of sockeye, pink and chum salmon across the Pacific Rim is higher than it has been in many decades."
