I'm not sure that it discusses the "thinking" so much, but you can get a good
idea of the bureaucratic momentum of stocking by having a look at the history
book, "A century of fisheries in North America," published by the AFS.  You'll
find that the development of early fisheries management in the US (mid to late
1800s) was (and still is in many places) dominated by fish culture.  In that
book, Larkin has a chapter on "Management of Pacific Salmon of North America."

Hope it helps,
