    Seems this entire "theory" is merely at a hypothesis stage. I think it'll be years before they have any meaningful data.

    Evan is right. I'm not sure the author is giving conclusions, or giving hypotheses, which then need to be proven or disproven by the evidence gathered, AKA The Scientific Method. Global Warming? Hypothesis #1. Commercial Salmon Farming? Hypothesis #2, etc. It's certainly possible, even probable, that there are multiple contributors to the decline of sockeye, and surge of pinks. time to ferret out those contributors and judge their applicability and importance.
