Around two million pink salmon carcasses could be dumped into the ocean off Alaska because large numbers of fish at the Valdez hatchery have overwhelmed processors. The Solomon Gulch hatchery, operated by the non-profit Valdez Fisheries Development Association, releases 120 million pink salmon fry into the ocean each spring and expects most fish not to return 18 months later. The hatchery expected around 9.9 million to return this summer. Instead, around 20 million pink salmon are estimated to have returned, reported the Associated Press.
