Mumbles, I agree with you, writing letters helps, making a protest helps, getting as much information to those that can effect a change is key. Although it is all supply and demand, without demand and a supply that is believed to be not of concern as pointed out by Pike's nothing will change, it's ethics pure and simple or lack of, if Pikes does not buy them they will end up on a sushi bar overseas or someplace else, its all based on money. I personally think that a selective harvest and the investment into selective harvesting research needs to be fast tracked. WDFW has this information on selective harvesting: http://wdfw.wa.gov/fish/commercial/selective/methods.htm Trap nets to me make the most sense to me, kill all the hatchery fish you want please do it, but let the wild beauties go. Get a ban on gill nets and we might make a difference.
