The 2008 Puget Sound
Commercial Salmon Regulation pamphlet was mailed the week of June 15th.
If you have not received a copy please contact (360) 902-2700 and ask
for a copy or check our web site where one may be downloaded at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/commercial/salmon/
Fishers are reminded
that a Fish Friendly certification card will be required to participate
in any Area 7 or 7A commercial salmon fisheries. Contact Jeromy Jording
at (360) 902-2717 if you need to attend a workshop to get a card. A
schedule of Fish Friendly workshops is also available at the previously
listed web address.
Area 7 and 7A sockeye
fisheries are not posted on this hotline so you need to check the National
Marine Fisheries Hotline at (888) 858-9319.
In addition to
Fish Friendly cards, please be aware of specific gear requirements during
Area 7 and 7A sockeye openings:
require “Seabird Strips” to participate.
- Purse Seines
are required to brail and have an operational recovery box aboard
- Reef nets
are required to have Puget Sound Reef Net Logbooks aboard to retain
any marked Chinook.
