Trout Unlimited petitionsCheck under Pacific Salmon for petitions to
define the ESU and list just wild populations. Trout Unlimited
wrote (and 17 organizations cosponsored) these petitions 2 years ago for
15 stocks although the argument applies to all 27. These petitions are
packed with scientific studies. They were accepted for

Trout Unlimited recently signed an agreement with NOAA to make the
12-month finding on those petitions no later than June 30, 2004.
