Rule to Change:
New Rule Proposal:
We , from Oregon are trying to get the gilnets out of the Columbia because of the damage they do to steelhead, sturgeon and wild salmon . The problem is harvest of the finclipped salmon suppose the sport fishermen could sell their catch to buyers . Also I propose that you come up with a tag ...for like $200.00 that would alow a person to catch as many fish as the tag would allow 10 / 20 ? he could only sell these fish to a commercial buyer and of course pay taxes on the profits .
Why the change is needed:
Revenue for the state to help maimtain hatcheries
