Commission will discuss GH salmon
The Washington Fish & Wildlife Commission will accept public comments on the proposed development of a new policy for managing salmon fisheries in Grays Harbor during a meeting scheduled Friday and Saturday in Olympia.
Also at the two-day meeting, the public will also have an opportunity to comment on proposed new rules for commercial dive fisheries and plans by the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife to purchase lands for wildlife conservation in Kittitas and Yakima counties.
The commission, a nine-member citizen panel appointed by the Governor to set policy for Fish & Wildlife, will convene at 8:30 a.m. both days in Room 172 of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. S.E., Olympia.
State fishery managers have proposed developing a new Grays Harbor salmon management policy to meet spawning goals for wild salmon returning to the basin and give sport and commercial fishers a clearer picture of what fishing opportunities they can expect each year.
A number of public workshops are scheduled on the proposed policy through mid-January. Information about those workshops is available at http://goo.gl/kLCLi6 .
