    Why would you link this to climate change... aside from the obvious reason?

    News flash; pinks run every year in most of the rivers that they are in but the PS rivers have larger odd number year runs than even years. This is mostly a Washington based board and pink mania doesn't usually show up 'til an odd number year. Jeez.

    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.
