    Here is another line of thought: the strongest most fit wild fish get the best spawning habitat, insuring the best chance of suvival for their offspring. 90% of hatchery eggs survive, insuring the weak as well as the strong suvive to fry stage, delute the gene pool and take limited food and habitat resources from an already strained population.
