Falcy, M.R. 2023. Inferring hatchery effects using spawner-recruit data: Comment on Courter et al. (2022). Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences.


Courter et al. (2022) address one of the most complicated and disputed topics in fisheries management- the effects of hatchery-origin fish on natural-origin fish. I contend that Courter et al. misinterpret and misstate evidence, adding confusion to a topic that needs clarity.
