    i would suggest you contact either organization if you cannot find the information on their websites. seems simpler and more accurate than asking on an internet bulletin board.

    I should think those on the forum that are members of these organizations would know...and why I asked. As a TU member, I know their positions on hatchery fish and their place in fisheries management and it's pretty well discussed on their website.

    In the case of NFS I would say no it is not " verboten, under any circumstance". The link below should make clear NFS's stance on hatcheries.
