    Do you or anyone else here have any links to more info about Gene Banks, etc? I'm interested, but have some questions about the purpose and methods. The Wind doesn't even get hatchery plants does it? Would we just be asking for a promise that they won't plant it in the future? Does "Wild Steelhead Gene Bank" mean anything more in terms of protection than "no hatchery plant river?"
