Recorded Wednesday, November 26th, 2008 at 2:00 AM

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/

Fishermen are encouraged to attend a post-season meeting scheduled for Thursday, December 11th, from 10 AM to 12 PM at the Lacey Community Center, located at 6729 Pacific Ave., Lacey WA, 98503. The meeting is an open forum to discuss the outcome of the 2008 commercial seasons, and begin scheduling negotiation sessions for the 2009 seasons.

For the period following November 30th all areas of Puget Sound are closed to the commercial harvest of salmon for the season.

Area 7B Bellingham Bay, which was scheduled to be open, has been closed due to harvestable surpluses of chum no longer remaining.

Catch data for the 2008 season will be posted here as post season catch accounting is finalized.

WDFW looks forward to your participation during the 2009 North of Falcon process.
