Public meetings scheduled on Hood Canal recreational shrimp season

OLYMPIA -- Four public meetings have been set by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to develop options for this year's Hood Canal recreational shrimp fishery.

The meetings will include presentations on the results of a recent test fishery and the findings of a questionnaire sent to Hood Canal shrimp fishers earlier this year.

The WDFW and treaty tribes have reached agreement on conservation principles for the fishery and are drafting a 1998 management plan. The recreational shrimp fishing regulations will be adopted following the public meetings.

  • April 13, Chimacum High School Auditorium, 91 West Valley Rd., Chimacum
