2010 Plan Update

The Puget Sound Chinook Harvest Management Plan defines conservation goals for state and tribal fisheries that catch Puget Sound chinook salmon, which are listed for protection under the federal Endangered Species Act.  Under that law, no fisheries affecting Puget Sound chinook can occur without a conservation plan approved by NOAA Fisheries. The current plan will expire in April, 2010. 

Draft revision of Plan submitted to NOAA fisheries

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Puget Sound Treaty Indian Tribes submitted a draft revision of the Harvest Management Plan to NOAA Fisheries in November of 2009, for coverage of fisheries beginning in May, 2010.
