Pictures of the salmon slaughter at Samish Hatchery in Skagit County, Washington

Note that the March 24, 1999 Federal Register (at page 14,314) identifies this very run of fish (Samish River fall chinook) as part of the same "evolutionarily significant unit" that is called "Puget Sound chinook salmon", listed as threatened, and used to steal private property.
