Description

This series determined that more than $3 billion has been spent since 1980 to rescue Columbia Basin Salmon runs. Yet many fish runs are closer to extinction than ever. The series documented a salmon recovery industry of bureaucrats, fisheries biologists, engineers and politicians earning their living off the continued decline of the salmon. Politics and inside connections determine which scientific studies are funded, and influence the outcome of those studies. Many multi-million dollar schemes such as hatcheries are proven failures, but lawmakers keep pouring money into them because they are politically popular. (July 28 - 30, 1996)
