Wait, I'm sorry, the above rant didn't address the actual issue you raised with my earlier post. You're right, you can't actually "make" the locals who benefit from the hatcheries invest in them. But if the federal gravy train dries up and goes away, and if they make as much money off the tourist dollar as the studies say they do, then, if they were astute capitalists (and I realize that's a really big IF), they would invest their own money in the hatcheries to ensure the ongoing profitability of their local businesses. I probably should have use the word "let" or "encourage" instead of "make" in my earlier post. Perhaps that would have made more sense.
